The Birmingham Interlocking Pelvic Osteotomy (BIPO) is a less well-known technique for correcting hip instability due to dysplasia. This technique uses an interlocking step cut in the ilium bone to create a stable construct and enable early weight-bearing, with a faster rehabilitation (Figure 1A and 1B). The procedure is carried out through two small incisions and this study shows overall survivorship of 76% at 10 years follow-up, with patients who were younger than 20 years of age enjoying 95% survivorship at 17 years follow-up!
At SCHI we are actively studying the latest advances in surgical techniques to maximize healing and reduce recovery time in the treatment of hip dysplasia. Our goal is to provide the least invasive treatment option to get rid of your pain and get you back to the active lifestyle that you enjoy!
