Developmental Hip Dysplasia (sometimes called a ‘clicky hip’) refers to an abnormal development of the hip joint in infants and children.

- Uneven thigh or buttock skin creases
- Uneven leg length
- Weight-bearing to one side when sitting...

- what treatment options are available to you so you can make an informed choice about treatment for your child.
