Dysplasia- Complex Reconstruction in the Young Adult was the title of Mr Pramod Achan’s presentation to an audience of hip surgeons from across the North West of the UK recently. Patients as young as 12 years old being planned for ‘Customised’ implants using our Symbios proprietary 3D planning software..HipPLAN. Mr Achan went onto explain that these patients benefit from joint replacement as they attend school, socialise with friends, develop relationships and families- a compelling argument for the socio- economic benefits of such surgical intervention despite our concern for long term survivorship..30 years might be an acceptable expectation these days but this work takes us into unchartered waters.
