Adductor Lengthening

 

Why is this surgery recommended?


Sometimes the muscles in the inner part of your child’s thigh or his or her groin are very tight. These muscles are called adductors. This can restrict movement of your child’s hip outwards and can lead to abnormal hip development.



What happens during the surgery?


Your child’s surgeon will make a small cut in the groin and cut one or more of the tight muscles so that they are lengthened.
