Hip Dysplasia (DDH) Treatment
Developmental Dysplasia of the Hip (DDH) is an uncommon, but potentially disabling condition of the hip. During the first several years of life, the hip joint undergoes development and maturation to ultimately have a round ball (the femoral head) in a round socket (the acetabulum). In cases of DDH or hip dysplasia, this developmental process is adversely affected–preventing the “normal” hip from developing. In such cases, the dysplasia can lead to premature arthritis of the hip joint.
