About This File
The acetabulum is where the head of the femur meets the pelvis to form the hip joint. The three pelvic bones unite to form the acetabulum, the ishcial bone inferiorly, the iliac bone superiorly, and the pubic bone medially. In order to serve the purpose of providing articular surface to the femur, the acetabulum is covered by a layer of articular cartilage and synovial fluid.
