traumatic injury leading to fusion : LUSENET : About Joints : One Thread

Might anyone have any thoughts on a hip replacement 4 years following traumatic injury leading to hip fusion (patient/daughter) now 16 years old. We have been told she has too much tissue damage to support this surgery. She now lives in a lot of pain as her body is out of alignment, having grown since the fusion. I think there must be something more out there we can do for her. We are currently switching physicians and starting with that. Thank you. Caryn
