Seeking answers through the pain

This article tells the story of the history and outcome of a 64-year-old woman who had suffered pain and other symptoms for over a decade. The woman thought nothing could be done to help her condition. The procedure that was eventually undertaken brought about a huge transformation in pain reduction and helped with mobility and posture. This operation came into being in relatively recent times and has revolutionised the treatment of people with hip-spine syndrome. The technique called an in-situ arthroplasty operation allows accurate restoring of leg length, together with restoring the natural alignment of hip structures.
