I'm 26, my mother born w/ severe bilateral hip dysplasia corrected by surgery. Lifelong hip "catching" and clicking in joint, and pain. Poss dysplasia?
Now arthritis: Dysplasia correction involves cutting the femur and/or pelvis, and the changing the alignment to improve coverage of the ball by the socket. Dysplasia comes in various types and degrees of severity. Because the correction is rarely 'perfect', some symptoms can be present. Most patients develop degenerative changes later in life. (arthritis). ...Read more

What are the requirements for a young adult with hip dysplasia (23, F) to be a candidate for a Peri-Acetabular Osteotomy?
Coverage: I would not hesitate to be seen for a more detailed explanation, but basically the procedure is done to improve acetabular coverage of the femoral head. So criteria would be a femoral head that lacks full coverage, usually by 39-40 percent, adequate range of motion of that hip, and lack of severe degenerative cahges in the hip itself. Again, don't hesitate to be seen. ...Read more
Will glucosamine and condroitin sulfate improve the residual pain from congenital hip dysplasia in a female adult?
Not likely: There is little clinical evidence to support these supplements. Most research has been with osteoarthritis. These supplements are safe and well tolerated by most. It cannot necessarily hurt to try. The main draw back is cost. I encourage my patients to try them for about a month and if no improvement then don't waste the money. ...Read more
Need to define cured: The severity of hip dysplasia will determine the prognosis of the disease. Mild cases often need little to no treatment.

Sure: You may want to discuss this with your OB prior to conception as they may just want to look at pelvic x-rays to determine if there would be any problems with vaginal delivery (usually not with just dysplasia). But you do this before pregnant so fetus not exposed to radiation. At worst, you might need C-section, but no reason not to be able to have kids. ...Read more

If you have left hip dysplasia does your right hip compensate by turning out to make the hips more symmetrical?
Maybe: I am not aware of any medical studies which confirm what you have described, however I do know that everyone's body is different, and it may be that your individual body does compensate in that way. I would certainly consider seeing a physician to evaluate whether there is any underlying right hip pathology to explain what you are seeing/experiencing. ...Read more
If I have left hip dysplasia then will the right hip forever till the day I die be stronger and more stable than l?
Forever?: Life has no such certainties as "forever", except as the old saying from ben franklin's writings goes: "in this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes." for example, a person with a better right hip can be unlucky and develop bad arthritis in that hip, or just fall down and break it. ...Read more
Hip can slip out: For reasons unclear some infants are born with a loosness about the hip joint that permits the big ball of the upper leg to slip out of the cup like socket. Drs check for this at birth & well checkups. After 3 mo the ligaments tighten & detection is harder. Some are picked up as walking starts. Tight swaddeling with legs extended may incerase risk & girls & breach babies have higher risk. ...Read more

Twenties. Ballet/athlete. Left hip dysplasia becoming increasingly problematical. Shouldn't this have been solved as a baby?
Depends: While hip dysphasia occurs as a child, the future ramifications may last and worsen into adulthood. This depends entirely on whether the hip joint maintained normal shape and thus developed properly or not. If there is residual deformity, it will likely lead to future pain and arthritis. You should have an xray evaluation to find this out. ...Read more
