Juvenile Pelvic Symphysiodesis (JPS)

Juvenile pubic symphysiodesis (JPS) is a procedure that is used to treat hip dysplasia in the early stages of its disease process. The procedures involves disrupting a growth plate running down the centre of the pelvis. This causes the hip socket (acetebulum) to rotate and improve the contact with the ball of the femur.
