Developmental Dysplasia of Hip

Developmental Dysplasia of Hip

Developmental Dysplasia of Hip

Previously known as congenital dislocation of hip, this condition has to be diagnosed early to be treated with a brace. If diagnosed late, surgery is invariably required. Many of these patients need to undergo complex pelvic osteotomies to reconstruct the socket. I specialize in reconstructive hip surgeries for patients who have had delayed diagnosis or failed surgeries for DDH.

What causes DDH in a child?

A combination of things may lead to DDH. It may be partly genetic. DDH tends to run in families. It may also be partly environmental, such as:

  • The baby’s response to the mother’s hormones during pregnancy

  • A tight uterus that makes it hard for the fetus to move around

  • A breech delivery, when the baby is born bottom-first instead of headfirst

What are the symptoms of DDH in a child?

The following are the most common symptoms of DDH. Symptoms can occur a bit differently in each baby. They can include:

  • The leg may appear shorter on the side of the dislocated hip
  • The leg on the side of the dislocated hip may turn outward
  • The folds in the skin of the thigh or buttocks may appear uneven
  • The space between the legs may look wider than normal
