Much of hip osteoarthritis is caused by hip deformity such as acetabular dysplasia and femoro-acetabular impingement. Recent advances in surgical techniques including osteotomy and arthroscopy have allowed us to correct the deformity with minimal morbidity. The techniques are effective in relieving the clinical symptoms but whether or not we truly preserve the joint is unclear. Recent evidence supporting the role of these conditions in the development of hip OA and possible alteration of OA development with surgical intervention will be reviewed in this talk.
