Salter Innominate Osteotomy

  • Stuart L. Weinstein


The patient was taken to the Operating Room and after adequate general anesthesia. The involved hip was elevated off of the operating table by placing a (rolled bath blanket, sand bag, or IV bag) underneath the back. The opposite leg and peroneal nerve are protected by foam padding. The entire extremity from the toes to the groin up to the nipple line on the involved side are prepped and draped free in the usual sterile manner. A “bikini” incision is made just below the iliac crest region, extending 3.5 cm proximal to the anterosuperior spine and 1.5 cm distally. Dissection is carried down to the subcutaneous tissues down to the anterosuperior spine.
