Pemberton Osteotomy

  • Stuart L. Weinstein


The patient was identified and the extremity marked in the preoperative holding area. He/she was brought into the operative suite and placed supine on a radiolucent operating table. The patient was induced into general endotracheal anesthesia without difficulty. IV antibiotics were administered.

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 were protected by foam padding. The skin of the affected side of the abdomen, pelvis, and the entire lower extremity was prepped and draped in the usual sterile manner.
