I agree with Mikey T. Get another opinion or two to be absolutely certain that it is HD.

Our lab was diagnosed with HD at around 1 year of age and it was already bad enough to have done some damage. We opted to have a surgery called a TPO - triple pelvic osteotomy. This surgery is an option on dogs around one year of age or less. It worked out well for us. He is now 7 years old and that leg is his stongest one. This may be the surgery your vet was referring to. If you Google "Triple Pelvic Osteotomy" there is a lot of information.
