I'm newly diagnosed with HMS but not with Hip Problems, and if anyone needs any advice i can help. I have had currently a z-plasty with a local orthopaedic surgeon (DO NOT recommend) and once under a Hip Specialist that does Young hips I'm 35yrs old. I've had a Triple Pelvic Ost where they break the pelvis in 3 places and realign it, screw and plated it together, and a Femur Valgus Ost where i was given a 2 inch gap whereas the bone had to grow and give me the extra 2 inch length as legs were different lengths. So i have a 6 inch scar on the right side from the z-plasty, and a 7 inch scar at pany line for pelvic ost and a 12 inch scar for the femur ost.
Going in for a Femur Rotation and general clean up after the horrid mess of the z-plasty and bursa removal in right hip, hopefully at Christmas. This is where the Femur is rotated to match the direction of the tibia.
A really good site for Hip problems is http://injuryupdate.com.au

Happy Hippie Healing xx
