Home / What is Hip Dysplasia?

Common Issue: Hip Dysplasia is a condition where the ball of the thighbone doesn’t quite fit securely into the hip socket. If baby’s hips are stretched out too much it might distort the cup-shaped socket. Hip dysplasia doesn’t hurt for a baby, but it can lead to unnecessary permanent damage to the hips. No carrier can cause hip dysplasia if the baby doesn’t already have hip dysplasia as a pre-existing condition. In Switzerland, we have mandatory hip ultrasounds at 2 months old but not all countries require this mandatory check up and since hip dysplasia is a silent condition (no pain to the baby), sometimes hip dysplasia can be left undetected till too late.
