SCFE is a condition that affects the femoral head at the level of the growth plate where the femoral head slips off the neck. In lay terms, can be described as the ice cream falling off the ice-cream cone. Treatment with In Situ Pinning for SCFE varies depending on the type of slip and severity. The severity is usually described as mild (0-30 degrees), moderate (30-60) or severe (over 60 degrees) slip. In situ fixation is only recommended for mild to moderate slips. In some cases, our team might also recommend pinning the contralateral hip (other side).
