Screening and treatment for developmental dysplasia of the hip in Cardiff and South Wales

Developmental dysplasia of the hip refers to a spectrum of conditions where the hip joint has failed to form properly so that the ball of the thighbone (femur) is not held firmly in the socket.  The degree of looseness can vary from mild to complete dislocation, but requires identification in all cases as any defect can lead to an increased risk of hip problems such as early arthritis of the hip.


All babies are checked post-birth and twice by a GP before the age of 8 months for developmental dysplasia of the hip, however these physical examinations are not always definitive and subtle problems can be missed.  An expert in paediatric hip conditions, Mr Thomas offers ultrasound screening for babies under 4 months at risk of developmental dysplasia of the hip, including those with a family history, those who were born breech or experienced low levels of fluid in the womb, first born girls and those with foot abnormalities at birth.  


Ultrasound is a totally safe and radiation-free scanning technique.  Developmental dysplasia of the hip, if identified early, can almost always be treated by splinting the hip into a more anatomically correct position for approximately 12 weeks.  The hip is then monitored by means of regular check ups to ensure that it develops properly.
