Investigating New Opportunities for the Treatment of DDH

The International Hip Dysplasia Institute (IHDI) continues to investigate groundbreaking methods for diagnosis and treatment of hip dysplasia. Not all technologies prove beneficial, but nevertheless, we pledge to look under every rock, and around every corner to find new innovations in the area of hip dysplasia.

We wanted to make you aware of one such exploration. In November of 2018, the IHDI sent 4 physicians to Thessaloniki, Greece to investigate a new, brace treatment of dislocated hips between the ages of 6 months and 24 months. This treatment method has been reported as successful in a major scientific journal and has been successful in two known cases in the USA. Our physicians have some reservations about application and long-term results, but this method could prove beneficial to patients around the world. A more complete report is expected from the physicians who participated in this initial exploration soon.

We thank you for your continued support to make this type of exploration possible.
