Complex Hip Replacement dysplastic hip Dr.A.K.Venkatachalam. A Complex Hip Replacement by Dr.A.K.Venkatachalam restored mobility to a 20 year old male after life long suffering. His hip was destroyed in infancy from pus formation in the joint. This lead to destruction of the ball, neck and socket of the hip joint. The thigh bone was poorly developed. This condition is known as a dysplastic hip as a sequelae of septic arthritis of hip in infancy. He decided to get this treated by Dr.A.K.Venkatachalam. Dr.Venkat performed a complex hip replacement to restore the anatomy of the joint. He used an SROM hip with ceramic on ceramic linings. Now the patient can walk normally.
