What is a cam lesion? A cam lesion is an extra “bump” on the femoral head or neck, also known as the “ball” of the hip joint. Having this lesion decreases or prevents rotation of the hip. It can also cause damage to the cartilage and labrum in the hip joint. This lesion will be removed during the surgery.
How is hip dysplasia corrected in an adult? To correct hip dysplasia in an adult, the most common procedure is called a peri-acetabular osteotomy. Hip dysplasia is when the acetabulum, the “socket” of the hip joint, is too shallow. During the surgery, the acetubulum is cut from the pelvis and re-positioned making the “socket” deeper for the femoral head.
