Pelvic support osteotomy using ilizarov external fixator


Injury and deformity remained part of human life and suffering for long. A deep injury requires a detailed diagnosis, strategic planning, and stepwise approach to recover the patient. The present review provides an updated view of the epidemiology, diagnosis, surgical technique, and complications, related to pelvic surgery or hip reconstruction. Hip surgery is an intricate and complicated process that requires keen attention to detail in many aspects of the process. Extensive care should be taken on the clinical, physiological, surgical aspects along with the patient’s condition and specific surgical requirements.
