The Bernese periacetabular osteotomy (PAO) is a powerful technique for correcting acetabular coverage in patients with developmental dysplasia of the hip. However, there is increasing recognition of additional intraarticular pathologies that may contribute to ongoing pain. For this reason, for the last 3 years, we have combined hip arthroscopy with PAO to treat intraarticular pathology along with improving acetabular coverage. Our technique is reviewed below.
