Hip dysplasia: treatment without surgery
If the hip joint is not located in the centre, or in the case of complete hip luxation, the hip will need to be put back in place under anaesthetic. Our specialists will be able to accurately check if the hip was put back in place correctly through magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) under the anaesthetic, without applying radiation. After this procedure, the hip will need to be immobilised for several weeks in a plaster cast before further splint treatment. In most cases, this helps us achieve a good shaping of the hip joint.
