Learning about Hip Dysplasia

Jessica Hixon, Physician Assistant with Miami Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Institute, explains hip dysplasia is the shallowing of the ball and socket. That means the ball can move around, and the hip does not develop normally and it can dislocate. She also says it is a condition that you are born with and it is noted at that first visit from the neonatologist and pediatrician at birth.
