About Us


Founding – Partners

The IHDI would like to thank the Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children, the Git-R-Done Foundation and the Fundación Telefónica. Without their generous support, we would not be where we are today.

With locations and contributing faculty around the world, the International Hip Dysplasia Institute is based at Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children in Orlando, FL USA. In partnership with Arnold Palmer Hospital and its parent organization Orlando Health (a not-for-profit hospital system), all philanthropic gifts will be processed through the Orlando Health Foundation.

The Git-R-Done Foundation will provide assistance to individuals, families and organizations that have experienced hardships beyond their control.

We have witnessed a shift in baby carrier designs resulting in improved positioning, which benefits infant hip health. This shift in the industry would not have happened without your support and recognition.

“The International Hip Dysplasia Institute (IHDI) is the global humanitarian leader in the fight against hip dysplasia. They envision a world free from the suffering of hip dysplasia by increasing awareness and prevention, developing new diagnosing technologies and improving the treatment process for those affected by hip dysplasia. The  IHDI recently outlined their strategic focus and projected a total project estimate of $3,000,000 to meet the needs of the hip dysplasia community.  One of the goals of Miles4Hips is to raise awareness of the IHDI and to be a primary donor and supporter through individual and group fundraising efforts.”
