Congenital Hip Dislocation Surgery

Book Now

At Heritage Hospital, we are one of the leading hospitals in Varanasi to offer comprehensive treatment facilities and plans to treat congenital conditions in infants and children. With a well-advanced Orthopaedic Department with high-skilled doctors, surgeons, and pediatric orthopedic doctors, our team is dedicated to providing a personalized treatment plan for Congenital Hip Dislocation Treatment in Varanasi.


Congenital hip dislocation (DDH) or Hip Dysplasia is a condition where the hip joint does not develop properly, leading to instability and potential dislocation in infants. The surgical approach is the last resort to treat the condition. Early detection gives ample time to our hip dislocation doctors in Varanasi to try different non-surgical treatment options like the Pavlik harness method to reposition the thigh bone into the socket.


However, as the child ages, the flexibility reduces, and closed and open surgery are the only options to realign the hip. Nonetheless, our doctors are here to navigate you through the different options and discuss all the risks and possible outcomes to develop an effective treatment plan.


Symptoms to understand if the baby has hip dysplasia


Early medical intervention can be extremely beneficial and increases the success of congenital hip dislocation treatment if


it is detected early. Usually, the baby born with hip dysplasia does not show any outward symptoms; however, as per our doctors, here are some signs you can look for in your baby:


  • Legs of different lengths

  • Uneven skin folds on the thigh

  • Less mobility or flexibility on one side

  • Limping, toe walking, or a waddling gait


Diagnostic Facilities Required For Congenital Hip Dislocation Treatment


At Heritage Hospital, our orthopedic department follows a patient-centric approach to provide the highest standard of care. The doctors for Hip Dysplasia in Varanasi suggest the best treatment plan after analyzing the different factors, like the child's age, the severity of the condition, the presence of associated abnormalities, and the medical team's and parents' preferences. Here are some diagnostic facilities available at Heritage Hospital that assist our doctors in making the right decision:


  • Ultrasound provides real-time images of the hip joint to detect the dislocation and evaluate the acetabulum (hip socket).

  • X-rays to assess the hip joint's bony structures, alignment, and any signs of hip dysplasia or dislocation.

  • MRI provides detailed images of soft tissues, cartilage, and joint structures, aiding in surgical planning in complex cases.

  • Routine blood and laboratory tests to assess the child's overall health.


When is Congenital Hip Dislocation Surgery in Varanasi Required?


Our doctors recommend congenital hip dislocation surgery in Varanasi when the non-surgical treatments fail to correct the hip joint instability or when specific indications make surgical intervention necessary. Here are some common instances where surgical intervention becomes essential for the child's well-being:


  • Non-surgical approaches, like bracing or harnessing, fail to achieve hip joint stability.

  • The hip joint remains dislocated after non-surgical treatment.

  • If there are severe anatomical abnormalities of the hip joint, like a shallow acetabulum (hip socket) or misshapen femoral head (ball of the hip joint).

  • Surgical interventions are required for older children with DDH.

  • The condition relapses after successfully reducing the hip joint.

  • The condition is associated with other orthopedic or neuromuscular conditions.

  • Surgical methods are required if DDH is diagnosed at an older age to prevent long-term complications.
