I am well aware of that, thank you very much.
Yes, there is the reduction by popping it back in and using a sling to keep the hip from popping out and there are other surgeries to go in, rotate the femur to its normal place and using sutures or such to keep it in place.
The OP is making an appointment with a specialist, which is the main thing. We don't know what the surgeon will suggest.
I was going from personal experience working in a clinic and from what I read online stating which procedures are most commonly used. I don't see anywhere that I was pushing him towards something other than seeing an orthopedic surgeon. The OP was talking about surgery, did not specify which one and wanted to know what surgeries are out there and success rate.
Geez, I really don't know why I am still posting on the forum.
