Hip Dysplasia

When Heather woke up after her hip surgery she noticed an immediate difference.

Heather, an Evansville nurse battled hip pain for years. When her pain got to the point where she was only sleeping two hours a night, Heather knew it was time to do something about it. Heather connected with IU Health orthopedic surgeon Todd McKinley, MD to learn more about her options, which lead to periacetabular osteotomy (PAO), a procedure that corrects hip dysplasia by realigning the ball and socket. A year later, the procedure has helped Heather escape pain and reclaim a more active lifestyle.
