Core tip: Various pelvic osteotomies have been developed for treating developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH). In the present paper, we review previous studies on triple osteotomy as an alternative treatment for DDH and also report our experience with 6 DDH cases treated by triple osteotomy in order to highlight the various aspects of this procedure. In our cases, clinical scores as well as radiographic parameters were significantly improved. We found that the clinical results of triple osteotomy were satisfactory and it should be considered as an alternative pelvic osteotomy procedure in adults with DDH.
