Do hip dysplasia and femoral anteversion go hand in hand? I was just diagnosed with both, when you have one, do u automatically have the other?

In brief: No

Femoral anteversion is extremely common, so common that it is felt to be more of a variation in development than a disease process.
It is the most common cause of children walking with their toes pointing inward. Hip dysphasia is different and involves the hip not developing normally. They are independent of each other, but a person can certainly have both at the same time.
