Orthopedics and Traumatology Specialist Prof. Dr. According to Omar Faruk Bilgen, since the hip joint has completely changed its location, limp and brevity in the leg occur as the child begins to walk. But pain is not observed in childhood. Because at a young age, there is no disorder enough to cause pain.
Children With Hip Dislocation Walk Later
Prof. Dr. Omar Faruk Bilgen notes that parents can track whether their children have a hip dislocation by paying attention to the following points:
Children with hip dislocation may have short legs.
At the time of starting to walk, the child's walking is disrupted or delayed.
In the Normal process, children walk around one year of age, while children with hip dislocation may not walk until 1.5-2 years of age.
Chairman Of The Board Of Private Medicabil Hospital Prof. Dr. "Hip dislocation can present very serious problems in infancy when it is delayed or ignored, while a child health and disease specialist and orthopedics and Traumatology Specialist can start the treatment process with early detection. As a result, it causes serial disorders at a level that will affect a person's entire life. For this reason, I emphasize that preventive medicine and its applications are the basis of this work. By looking at the child's hip with ultrasound, it is measured and evaluated in infancy in accordance with a number of angles and measurements. In the later period, it is being monitored as to whether the development delay will continue and whether it will be operated on. Here are the X-rays taken by the examination of orthopaedic specialists, and these angles are thoroughly evaluated and revealed whether there is a need for surgery.”
