Hip dislocation (congenital)

Hip dislocation (congenital)

Congenital dysplasia of the hip, also called developmental hip dysplasia, is characterised by hip dislocation and can affect one or both joints. The hip joint is a ball and socket joint which is involved in weight bearing. Normally the head of the thigh bone (femur) fits perfectly into the socket of the hip bone (acetabulum). But in this disorder, this approximation between femur head and the acetabulum is disrupted due to various reasons and results in hip dislocation.
