PAO (periacetabular osteotomy) any experiences?

It’s looking more and more likely that this is the next step for my garbage fire of a hip. Any horse people with experience or stories to share?

Here’s a page on it for those not familiar and curious:

Hey @Simkie I have no PAO knowledge but I just saw your post in Off Topic that you had surgery yesterday. Did you have the PAO? How are you doing? Hope everything is going well —

Hey! No, Friday was something different. If we move forward with PAO, it’ll be sometime in the summer. Hope your hip is doing well! :grin:

Ah, wishing you a smooth recovery and hoping that down the road they are able to permanently resolve your hip issues. PAO sounds scary but it also sounds like a good option if that will solve your problems!
