Dysplasia

Developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH), also called hip dysplasia, is a lifelong condition, which occurs in about one in 1,000 people.

 

DDH sufferers are born with altered hip anatomy. Because the DDH hip is out of joint as it grows, it doesn't develop properly, and it wears out faster. DDH leads to arthritis at an earlier age.

The most significant risk factor for DDH is a family history of the disorder. Other DDH risk factors include being the first child, being female and breech delivery.
