PLEASE do a show on hip dysplasia (DDH)

Developmental Dysplasia of the Hip (DDH) – is commonly used when talking about hip dysplasia in children. Approximately 1 out of every 20 full-term babies has some hip instability and 2-3 out of every 1,000 infants will require treatment. In spite of the frequency of DDH in babies and the potential for life-long disability caused by DDH, the awareness of this condition is poor outside of the medical profession. Sometimes pediatricians even miss DDH! Early diagnosis, prevention, and simple treatment is the best solution, however many hip dislocations are difficult to treat with the current methods of care.
