Hi everyone! In the last IHDI newsletter I covered a couple of books about hip dysplasia for babies and children (Hope the Hip Hippo). This time, I’m reviewing two books about adult hip dysplasia. Adults can have hip dysplasia if they weren’t diagnosed and treated in childhood, or if they were treated and still have residual hip dysplasia.

The first book I’m reviewing today is Anatomy Riot, which was written by Emily Running, a dancer and aerialist whose hip dysplasia wasn’t diagnosed  and treated until adulthood.

Anatomy Riot
by Emily Annette Running

In Anatomy Riot, Emily Running shares her personal experience as a dancer and aerialist who discovers that she has hip dysplasia and needs major hip surgery—a  PAO, also called periacetabular osteotomy. Emily takes the reader through the devastating diagnosis and the aftermath, which was compounded by the fact that all of her income depended on her ability to dance, teach yoga and Pilates, and so on. This memoir goes beyond the physical aspects and shares the emotional and social impact of diagnosis, treatment, and recovery. Anatomy Riot is easy to read and not at all depressing. Emily Running’s resilient personality and interesting occupation make this an engaging read.

This book is available through most online booksellers, and you can order a copy at many brick and mortar bookstores.

The next book I’m reviewing is A Guide for Adults with Hip Dysplasia by Denise Sutherland and Dr. Sophie West who both have adult hip dysplasia.

A Guide for Adults with Hip Dysplasia
by Denise Sutherland and Dr. Sophie West

A Guide for Adults with Hip Dysplasia is an incredibly complete resource about hip dysplasia and its treatment in adulthood. Not only does this illustrated book clearly explain hip anatomy and surgical treatments, it goes beyond the medical context to offer practical advice and emotional support for patients before, during, and after surgery. The authors’ friendly tone and the many quotes they’ve included from patients who have been through treatment really bring this book to life. Thank you Denise and Dr. Sophie for writing this wonderful book. It’s a welcome addition to my bookshelf.

This book is available through most online booksellers, and you can order a copy at many brick and mortar bookstores.
