Heterotrophic ossification can occur as a result of trauma or following surgery. This can be removed in some cases. x-rays need to be reviewed and a medical history considered in order to determine if this is a possibility for you. There are regimens prescribed postoperatively in order to prevent a reoccurence of the H.O.

I will be receiving radiation following a 4th re-do of a total hip replacement due to scar tissue. It is myunderstanding that radiation can significantly reduce the risk of H. O.

I am 40 years old and was in an MVA aug. 03,2002. I am suffering from ho and would like to know my options. Also I would like a second opinion. My doctor now says that I may be looking at hip replacement. My next appointment with him is in june. I stil exercise even though he said I could stop with the physical therapy. I also would like to know if ther is a possibilty of my ever getting back on the ambulance as a EMT.
