Childhood and adolescent hip problems constitute a significant proportion of our practice @ CPOD.
Appropriate and timely management of these problems can avoid potentially debilitating consequences during later years of life.
Unlike adult hip disorders, childhood hip problems may not always present with pain and often end up being detected late.
Children usually present with a limp which may or may not be associated with pain.
At CPOD, we have the necessary experience and expertise in the management of paediatric hip disorders to achieve the best possible outcomes.
Listed below are a few clinical scenarios that we deal with
- Evaluation of a child with a limp
