Patient Case History: Carol

Lengthening and deformity correction in fibrous dysplasia with osteotomy and hip replacement


Patient Surgeon: S. Robert Rozbruch
Carol has a 14 cm leg length discrepancy and severe deformity from fibrous dysplasia. The tibia is in valgus and external rotation. The hip is stiff, arthritic, and fixed in an adduction position.


She was treated with a total hip replacement and a 2 level tibial osteotomy to correct her deformities.


With complete correction of all deformities, she has gained a large amount of length. Her hip is mobile and her legs are straight.
