Dysplasia-related hip instability causes pain and intra-articular derangement. The bone, the joint capsule, and the labrum are involved. We describe a surgical procedure of limited invasiveness that corrects the dysplasia by creating an acetabular shelf, repairs the secondary lesions by suturing the labrum and tightening the capsule, and corrects cam femoro-acetabular impingement if present.
