We provide professional support in Hip displacement.
According to the data of the World Health Organization, congenital hip
dislocation, which is seen in 2 out of every 1000 live births, is slightly more
common in our country and is seen at a rate of approximately 5 per 1000 in our
country. Risk factors for congenital hip dislocation can be listed as
being the first child, female gender, family history, lack of gestational
water, prematurity, accompanying neck and foot deformities.
Congenital hip dislocation disease process begins in the mother’s womb, but the
course of the disease continues after birth and tends to worsen as the baby
grows. Since the baby is always on the lap, the dislocation of the hip
cannot be recognized by the parents until the age of walking.
The limitation of movement in the hip joint and the incompatibility with the
socket can only be understood by examining the hands experienced in this
field. In mild cases or in cases where the hip joint is not dislocated and
there is only insufficiency in the socket, the examination is not sufficient.
In the screening of congenital hip dislocation, it can be diagnosed easily and
painlessly with the ultrasound method in addition to physical
examination. Hip ultrasound scanning is performed in babies between 1 and
3 months. Thus, the diagnosis, treatment and follow-up of the patient is
faster and more effective.
