Juvenile Pubic Symphysiodesis

Juvenile Pubic Symphysiodesis (JPS) involves the fusion of a growth plate within the pelvis and is ideally performed at 4 to 5 months of age. All bones have what are called cartilage growth plates, which are how the bones form their shape and length. Fusion, or stoppage of growth, of a growth plate will alter the shape and development of the affected growth plate and bone.

JPS alters the pelvic development with the ultimate result of the ball and socket fitting more “tightly,” therefore, decreasing the potential amount of future hip arthritis.
