Pediatric Hip Disorders

Hip disorders make it difficult for children to move

What are pediatric hip disorders?

There are a number of hip disorders affecting children that can cause pain in the hips, groin, thighs, or knees. Children may find it difficult to walk, or walk with a limp. Sometimes, even standing can be too painful. If your child experiences pain or difficulty in walking, you should see a pediatric orthopedic specialist.

Our pediatric orthopedic specialists can diagnose and treat many pediatric hip conditions, including:

  • Hip dysplasia
  • Leg length discrepancy
  • Legg-Calve-Perthes disease
  • Slipped capital femoral epiphysis
  • Other hip disorders

We treat children’s hip disorders with more than just surgery. Pain management and physical therapy will be a part of your child’s personalized treatment plan in order to ensure he or she has the best possible recovery.
