ORLive Program Discusses Infant Hip Deformity

FARMINGTON, CT--(Marketwire - Nov 9, 2011) - BroadcastMed, Inc.'s surgical web portal is premiering another program in a long line of successful web content from Akron Children's Hospital. The upcoming program focuses on hip dysplasia. Developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) is a deformity that can occur before, during, or weeks after birth and can cause hip dislocation and/or an abnormal walk. Orthopedic surgeons Mark Adamczyk, MD and Kenneth Bono, MD will perform an open reduction procedure on an 18-month-old female. In an open reduction, the hip is realigned and the thighbone is placed back into the hip socket through surgery. It is important to recognize DDH early so a child can receive timely treatment and avoid orthopedic problems later in life.
