This medical animation illustrates how Cincinnati Children’s surgeons can repair hip dysplasia, a hip/joint problem that happens when the top of the thighbone does not fit securely into the hip socket.
When children are born with hip dysplasia and surgical repair is needed, it’s commonly done around 18 months of age.
