Patient Stories

Read a Story … Share a Story!

These are stories told by patients and parents themselves. The purpose of these stories is to lend your experiences to help others in similar circumstances and to provide education for others. We’ve organized the stories by age group, but some stories can appear in multiple places (mainly due to treatment length occasionally spanning multiple age groups).

We highly encourage including  pictures or video you may feel comfortable sharing! Patient stories need to be at least 4 paragraphs long.

Thank you to all of those who have shared their experiences and helped others through their experience with Hip Dysplasia!

*Please note: we reserve the right and responsibility to edit any deleterious or derogatory comments so that these stories can be enlightening and informative in an appropriate manner.
