Paediatric orthopaedic hip conditions that affect newborns, infants, children and adolescents

Paediatric Hip Problems

Paediatric hip conditions are hip issues that affect babies, children and adolescents. These hip problems can range from developmental issues that are present at birth such as Hip dysplasia to issues that develop as a child grows and becomes more active such as Perthes Disease or Slipped Upper Femoral Epiphysis (SUFE). Hip conditions can cause pain and difficulty with everyday activities such as walking, climbing stairs and participating in physical activity.

The treatment for paediatric hip conditions varies depending on your child’s age and specific condition, severity and activity level. However, it may include a combination of physical therapy, hip braces, or surgery if the condition is deemed severe.
