Iatrogenic pudendal nerve and groin complications have been reported to occur at rates up to 4.3%. While many of these complications are transient, the hip preservation community is in search of a safe postless distraction technique. Currently available postless distraction tables are expensive, require the surgeon to adopt a different technique, and have a high disposable fee. We present our technique for postless distraction using a standard table and a pink pad positioning device. Using our technique, we have demonstrated safe and cost-effective post-free distraction.
