His orthopedic history included bilateral talus deformities of the feet, bilateral dislocated hips, pes planus, a fractured femur (which healed without complications), aseptic necrosis in the left nuclear head of the femur, bilateral fixed hip flexion deformities, bone dysplasia, osteoporosis and osteolysis.
