    Definition of Hip dysplasia

    Hip dysplasia is the medical term for a hip socket that doesn’t fully cover the ball portion of the upper thighbone. Most people with hip dysplasia are born with the condition. If hip dysplasia is diagnosed in early infancy, a brace can usually correct the problem. Some people with hip dysplasia don’t develop symptoms until later in life. In those cases, surgery may eventually be needed to reduce pain and improve function.
