Dr. Sophie West FRCR, MRCS, MBBS MSc. (Sports medicine) BSc – UK

Dr. West is a Surgical Resident in London, UK planning to pursue a career in orthopedics. She was diagnosed at age 28 with bilateral DDH, and has since undergone periacetabular osteotomies on both hips. From this experience she has gained a unique perspective, combining both the patient and professional stand-points.

Now armed with this perspective she finds it important to further the knowledge of Hip Dysplasia and to make this knowledge available to all those in need. Along with Australian author Denise Sutherland (also a member of this advisory board), Sophie has written A Guide for Adults with Hip Dysplasia.
