If your baby or child has been diagnosed with developmental dysplasia of the hip (also known as DDH or hip dysplasia), you’ll have concerns and questions about her treatment, recovery, outlook and other issues. It may comfort you to know that at Children’s Hospital Boston, we’ll provide support every step of the way.
Whether your child’s hip needs non-surgical or surgical treatment, you can have peace of mind knowing that, as national and international orthopedics referral centers, Boston Children’s General Orthopedic Program, Orthopedic Center and Child and Young Adult Hip Preservation Program have treated a large volume of hip conditions that few pediatric hospitals have ever seen. As a result, we can provide expert diagnosis, treatment and care for every level of complexity and severity of DDH.
Unique expertise in problems of the adolescent hip. Many adolescents and young adults with hip problems need diagnostic and surgical techniques that differ significantly from what’s indicated for younger children. Boston Children’s Child and Young Adult Hip Preservation Program, led by Michael Millis, MD, and Young-Jo Kim, MD, is the only such program in the world. We offer the extensive experience and advanced techniques of clinicians and researchers dedicated to finding better ways to care for adolescents and young adults with hip problems.
