Our Approach To Developmental Hip Dysplasia

What Sets Us Apart

Each year, NYU Langone experts diagnose and treat hundreds of infants, children, and adults with developmental hip dysplasia, a condition that can cause hip dislocation, pain, difficulty walking, and arthritis. Our orthopedic specialists focus on identifying this condition as soon as possible to ensure that the hip joint develops properly. NYU Langone doctors offer effective treatments that aim to preserve the hip joint and prevent complications. Children with developmental hip dysplasia receive treatment through Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone.

Treatment at NYU Langone

Doctors at NYU Langone recommend nonsurgical treatment to prevent and manage hip dislocation in babies and young children with developmental hip dysplasia. Our doctors also specialize in orthopedic surgical procedures to reposition the hip joint, correct bone problems, and repair torn cartilage in adolescents and adults with developmental hip dysplasia.
