Hello Dr. Bolognesi,
I have fibrous dysplasia of my left femur along with severe osteoarthritis of my left hip. I have read where such dysplasia can lead to oa. What is your thought on this? My right femur & hip are fine.

My surgeon said the hip replacement would be somewhat difficult in getting the prosthesis to fit on the deformed femur yet he feels confident with options to get around this. He did not say what these options were. Have you dealt with this condition &, if so, how did you proceed?

Thank you,
georgia
