Congenital Hip Dislocation (Baby) - Diagnosis

Congenital Hip Dislocation (Baby) - Treatments

Babies with CHD can often be treated with an abduction splint, a device that reduces the dislocation and keeps the femoral head within the socket while the baby is growing. In very few cases where the femoral head continues to dislocate out of the socket, surgery may be necessary to reduce the dislocation.

When To Seek Help

It is important to screen for CHD at birth. If undetected and untreated, CHD can lead to a difference in limb length and affect gait when the infant starts learning to walk from nine months old.
