What is Hip Dysplasia?

Hip dysplasia is a medical condition characterized by a shallow socket that does not cover the ball of the hip joint properly. This often results in the partial or complete dislocation of the hip joint. In the majority of cases, the condition is congenital and the symptoms become evident shortly after birth. If the condition is detected early, it can be easily corrected with the help of soft braces. In the case of mild hip dysplasia, the symptoms develop gradually and do not become evident until a person is a teenager or young adult.

Hip dysplasia can severely damage the cartilage lining the joint and even lead to a hip labral tear. The symptoms triggered by hip dysplasia vary from one child to another. An infant suffering from the condition is likely to have one leg longer than the other. Toddlers suffering from hip dysplasia may develop a limp due to alleviated flexibility. Hip dysplasia can also increase the risks of osteoarthritis in future

In the case of a normal hip in which the socket completely covers the ball, the weight of the body is evenly distributed all over the femoral head, however, in case patients suffering from hip dysplasia, the weight is distributed over a small surface owing to the inadequate coverage of the femoral head.

  • Some common symptoms associated with hip dysplasia include
  • Persistent pain in the groin and upper thigh
  • Catching and popping sensation
  • Pain that becomes adverse with time
  • Limping

Things you need to know 

  • The average length of stay varies depending upon the type of treatment and how well you are responding to it.
  • The most common surgical procedure that is used to treat hip dysplasia is an osteotomy.

How to prepare for the treatment?

  • You need to make a list of all the signs and symptoms that you have been experiencing, including those that are not related to hip dysplasia
  • You need to inform your doctor about all the medications and supplements that you have been taking
  • Make sure that your doctor is well aware of your medical history
  • You will be required to undergo a series of tests to confirm hip dysplasia as well as to determine a proper treatment protocol that is to be followed.

Procedure involved 

  • The type of treatment depends upon the age of the patient and the adversity of their condition.
  • Infants with hip dysplasia can be easily treated by using soft braces that help to hold the joints together firmly. This helps the socket to mould itself to fit the ball.
  • In babies above 6 months of age, bracing might not prove to be much useful. In such cases, the bones will be moved into a proper position followed by the use of a full-body cast for several months. Surgery might also be performed for improving the alignment of the joints.
  • Osteotomy refers to the surgical reshaping of the bone by socket is detached and fixed back with the desired alignment. When done on the pelvic side of the joint, it is referred to as pelvic osteotomy and when done on the opposite side, i.e., the side of the femoral head, it is known as a femoral osteotomy. Both the procedures may be performed together or separately, along with reduction.
  • Hip replacement surgery might be recommended to older patients whose hip joints have been damaged beyond repair

What to expect after the procedure? 

  • After the treatment, you will be given a set of guidelines to be followed religiously
  • You will be prescribed certain medicines to help with the pain and other symptoms
  • You might be required to go for physiotherapy as it will speed up the recovery
  • There are certain things that are to be taken care of post-surgery. You need to discuss the same with you doctor
