Bony Pelvis

Summary Information: Bony Pelvis

Bony Pelvis: The bony pelvis is a large ring shaped cluster of bones located in the pelvis below the abdomen and above the lower extremities. The bony pelvis consists of two hip bones that are formed by the fusion of three bones during adolescence: the ilium, ischium, and the pubis. The two hip bones of the pelvis articulate with each other in the front at the pubic symphysis and in the lower back with the sacrum. The bony pelvis has many functions, including connecting the vertebral column with the femurs of the legs, bearing the weight of the upper body, and protecting some organs of the urinary system and the reproductive organs.

The female bony pelvis is different in structure than the male bony pelvis. Conditions that can afflict the bony pelvis include arthritis, trauma, osteomyelitis, cancer, inflammation and fracture.
