Hip Dysplasia (Developmental Dysplasia of the Hip)

Request an Appointment with an Orlando Health Physician

Hip dysplasia can occur during an infant or child’s development. It also can develop in adulthood. If your hip dysplasia is found early, we may be able to treat it with a brace. If the dislocation is diagnosed later in your life, our orthopedists will develop the best pain management and treatment plan, which may include surgery.


We will test your hip for range of motion and pain and may order X-rays or an MRI to determine the severity of your hip damage. Treatment may include medication and physical therapy. We also may recommend surgery to realign and save your hip. Orthopedic surgery to replace your hip may be the best option if there is extensive damage.
