Brief Answer:
Due to irregular acetabular surface.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for posting your query.
I have seen all the attached reports. The post op reports show that the surface of acetabulumn is still irregular and sclerosis is there. This can cause problem in walking and weight bearing on the hip.
Resurfacing of the acetabular surface can help.
The distortion of the hip joint is still present. Another surgery may be needed in future to correct the actabular surface.
Till then gradual physiotherapy can help in strengthening the muscles around the hip joint.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.

Brief Answer:
The head of femur is deformed.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing again.
It is not the fault of the surgeon. The head of femur has become deformed due to the dysplasia and is now irregular which is causing the pain during the movements.
Hope my answer is helpful.
Do accept my answer in case there are no further queries.
