Osteitis Pubis is a condition where there is chronic inflammation of the pubic symphysis joint, usually due to early arthritic changes. The two common scenarios are postpartum females and males with significantly reduced hip motion that results in overloading and pathological stresses directed through this area.
Treatment for osteitis pubis can include measures ranging from conservative treatments such as PT and steroid or PRP injections, to surgery.
Most male patients would benefit from surgical debridement of the damaged cartilage and sub chondral bone. However, due to their inherent tissue laxity which leads to failure of debridement alone, most female patients will require a joint fusion with plate and screws.
