Do they still do that? I think now, they just do a hip replacement....
The arthritis in the joint was so bad that it dissolved part of the socket away to where they had to cut the iliac (hip bone) into a wedge and turn it around so she would have a socket to attach the femur to. The procedure was said to last longer than a normal hip replacement, but the arthritis came back faster than they hoped and she ended up getting a hip replacement.
