Hip Dysplasia Directory
Hip dysplasia is a hip joint condition that can affect children. In some cases, the hip joint is just loose. In worse cases, the thigh bone can come out of the hip socket causing dislocation. Symptoms include a loose hip joint, extra skin on the inner thigh, one leg that is shorter than the other, and more. Treatment for hip dysplasia is moving the thigh bone and using a harness to keep it in place while the bones grow. Braces or surgery may also be used.
