    Any experience with baby having dislocated hips?

    My daughter is now nearly 8 months old and was born with dislocated hips. She wore a simple brace for 3 months and we thought all was fine. However, a recent visit to the Duchess of Kent revealed her hips are sub-lax. They want to put her under general to do an angiogram (inject a dye into her hips and take an x-ray). The outcome of this may be that they suggest putting her in a spica (a 3/4 length plaster) or doing surgery. Both procedures offer no guarantees.

    Has anyone else been through this? Can you recommend a good orthopaedic pediatrician? Any info would be really helpful.

    Thanks

    No, i have not been through this. But the teacher at my daughter's daycare has a boy over a year old and she told me a similar story. Her boy had a surgery to fix the hips, and now he is doing great and is even walking. I wish you and your child the best!!! Good luck!
