Legg-Calvé-Perthes disease (LCPD) is an adolescent hip disorder characterized by idiopathic osteonecrosis of the femoral epiphysis and believed to be associated with arterial infarction. This illness typically affects youngsters, specifically those between the ages of 4 and 8. This research seeks to investigate the impact of surgical operations on LCPD patients. September 2022 was the month during which we conducted a systematic review study. Google Scholar, NCBI, and Science Direct were used to search for articles. We included six publications with 208 patients in total. Our data indicate that this surgical approach can lower pain levels, increase femoral head coverage, and reduce hip subluxation in LCPD patients.
