What is a hip Dysplasia?


Early hip dysplasia (HD) is seen as an increased laxity (looseness) of the hip joint. The late form of HD is characterized by degenerative joint disease (arthritis). Early signs can be diagnosed before 6 months of age, while the late stage is often apparent as soon as 1 year of age.
