Hip Dysplasia [Presentation]
Hip dysplasia describes a condition where the hip’s ball (femoral head) and socket (acetabulum) are misaligned. The condition primarily affects children but is also commonly diagnosed in adulthood. Treatment options range from simple bracing to extensive surgery and should be determined based on the patient’s age and the severity of their condition.
