The procedure I had was a periacetabular osteotomy. They loosen the socket using precise cuts and re-direct it over the femoral head to give it proper coverage then insert screws to keep it in place. My son was 13 months old when I had it done. You will need someone living with you at least for some time to care for your son. How long that would be necessary depends on your recovery. Best wishes.
