Treatments for Dysplasia of the Hip in Children

Checking for dysplasia of the hip in babies is a regular part of standard checkups with their primary care providers. When diagnosed, one of our pediatric orthopedic specialists can help stabilize the hip and treat the condition to prevent pain or problems later in life. Often a simple harness before 6 months of age is enough to correct the problem, but other times, casting or surgeries are needed to ensure full recovery. Working with our exceptional pediatric orthopedic surgeons is the key to proper treatment.
