Hip dysplasia

Therapy according to individual requirements

There are different treatment options available based on the severity of the hip dysplasia. The type of treatment will essentially depend on how much the misalignment has progressed, but it can often be treated with corrective surgery.

Hip dysplasia: treatment without surgery

If the hip joint is not centrally located, or it is a case of complete hip luxation, the hip will need to be put back in place under anaesthetic. Our specialists will be able to accurately check if the hip was put back in place correctly through magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) under the anaesthetic.

Hip dysplasia: surgery

If there is no satisfactory “roofing” of the femoral head despite all efforts, the hip will need to be put back in place through surgery. Many patients presenting with hip dysplasia benefit from a surgical procedure called periacetabular osteotomy. In some cases, the femoral head is set into the hip socket using wire. Though the method of treatment will vary for each individual patient to suit specific needs, each procedure will be undertaken to provide you with the best possible outcome.
