There is a lot of information on bone grafts at the website "Ask Bonebrain", which is at this address: http://members.aol.com/msmorro/science/index.htm They talk about taking bone from the fibula in your lower leg and transplanting it into your hip. Check out that site. There are also a lot of links related to this at the very bottom of that page. It would be a shame to have to get a total hip at such a young age - hopefully this will help.
