Retroversion of the acetabulum
I just found out that I probably have this problem and they are discussing surgery.  I have my consult in two weeks.  Anyone ever deal with this before?

Hello.

Retroversion refers to the direction of the acetabulum. Normally the acetabulum faces antero-laterally. Retroversion means a postero-lateral direction. This is a dysplasia of the hip joint.

There is a risk of premature degenerative changes in the joint.

Have you been diagnosed recently? What are your symptoms?

Regards

I've been diagnosed, dut to a MRI with contrast injected directly  into my hip.  I have pain that typically shoots down my leg,  I've been dealing with it for 6 months.  i can't sit indian style and can't lay on my right side (affected side). I'm just really nervous about the treatments and repairs.  Could anyone shed any light on this?
