Hip services at Norton Children’s
The hip is a ball-and-socket joint that helps with balance, supporting body weight and mobility. Treating hip issues in children can help them grow up strong and minimize any pain or issues that can follow them into adulthood.
Types of hip conditions we treat
We diagnose and treat all pediatric hip disorders. We treat infants, children, teens and young adults with inherited, developmental and post-traumatic hip conditions. Some of the more common hip issues we see are:
- Hip dysplasia – A condition that can be present at birth that causes hips to be dislocated
- Hip dislocation – When the hip joint dislocates with the ball (femur) partially or completely out of the socket (acetabulum)
We understand every child is different. Our doctors and staff work with you to create a treatment plan that’s right for your child’s condition. From RICE (rest, ice, compression and elevation) to surgery, we help guide you and your family to the best outcome possible.
Hip surgeries we perform:
Varus derotation osteotomy (VDRO)
Salter pelvic osteotomy
