In the child beyond walking age, several types of pelvic osteotomy have been popularized in order to improve the mechanics of the hip joint and to retard the development of osteoarthritis. Each procedure has its own rationale and method, and accordingly, the indications vary somewhat for each type of procedure. Our purpose is to review the principles of patient assessment and to discuss the Pemberton pericapsular osteotomy, the Steel triple innominate osteotomy, Sutherland’s osteotomy and the shelf acetabuloplasty.
