Femoral Head Osteotomy – FHO Hip Surgery

 

This is a surgical procedure in which the head of the femur is removed. The head of the femur is the ball of a ball and socket joint.

  • Complimentary exam the day of surgery
  • Preoperative bloodwork panel
  • IV Catheter and fluids during and after surgery
  • Placement of a fentanyl patch before surgery

  • Antibiotics before during and after surgery
  • Hospitalization after surgery through the following day
