Paget’s Disease

  • Paget’s Disease causes bones too soften due to over activation of osteoclasts. Osteoclasts are responsible for breaking down bone. In response to this the body attempts to quickly lay down new bone. Which causes enlargement of the bone, typically the spine, skull and long bones are most affected.

Brief overview of the episode:

            Paget’s Disease is a rare bone disease that affects less than 1% of the population. There is over activation of osteoclasts (which break down bone). This result in the body trying to quickly rebuild build bone. However, the over response causes the new bone to soft and enlarged. This process is known as rapid isolated bone growth.

            The good news is this disease is very rare, affecting less than 1% of the population, and in most cases is highly manageable. The prevalence is 3:2 men to women and is more common as we age.

            Symptoms include pain in bones and joints, headache, hearing impairment, enlarged bones, bowing bones, numbness & tingling, difficulty bending over and fractures. Most commonly the long bones, spine and skull are impacted.

Ganz Osteotomy

  • In this episode: Ganz Osteotomy also known as a PAO (peri-acetabular osteotomy) is a type of hip surgery that works to increase the depth of the hip socket. This is usually done as a result of hip dysplasia and is often discovered when an adolescent athlete has torn their hip labrum.

Brief overview of the episode: 

              Ganz osteotomy is a hip sparing procedure that is done to correct hip dysplasia. In our practice it is most often discovered in adolescent athletes that begin to experience hip pain without a known cause. Often the hip pain is from a torn hip labrum and there is usually femoral-acetabular impingement present as well.

            The Ganz procedure, also known as peri-acetabular osteotomy, will move the relative position of the hip socket (acetabulum) so that it better covers the femoral head. This procedure involves separating the socket from the rest of the pelvis, re-orienting it and then using a few screws to hold it in place until the bone heals.

            Often times the Ganz is done in conjunction with femoral osteotomy as well as hip labrum repair/reconstruction. These procedures are sometimes done all during one surgery. Recovery time is upwards of 1 year.
