Developmental Dysplasia of the Hip

Developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) is a condition that causes instability in the hip socket, which causes it to become dislocated. The ligaments of the hip joint may also become stretched and loosen. If only one hip is affected it is known as unilateral hip dysplasia. If both hips are affected it is known as bilateral hip dysplasia.
