Proximal Femoral Osteotomy
The patient was properly identified by anesthesia and positioned supine on the flat table. Anesthesia was administered. The hip was bumped and prepped/draped in the usual fashion. A longitudinal incision was made from the tip of the greater trochanter, 8 in. along the shaft. The fascia lata was divided in line with the incision. The vastus lateralis was detached from its origin at the vastus ridge and retracted anteriorly with a homan retractor placed directly on the anterior femur.
