First, please review Order ID: 276665

Here I have uploaded the pictures after the surgery for both thigh. Her Dr told us to use 'Von Rosen Splint' at bed-time and do alot of swimming activity! some other doctors told us that she needs another surgery to fix the other leg!
I really feel sad for her. we dont want to keep doing surgeries and wait for a couple of months with no assure benefit. PLEASE tell me what do we need to do? Do we need to do what her Dr said or Do another surgery?

Thank you for your query at
I have read details of your question.I have seen x ray pictures.It looks that right hip is still not correct.If your x ray pictures are after doing opening of hip joint & correction osteotomy then at present doing splinting will be safer & later on when your child become older then acetabular procedures can be performed .By this procedure they make false socket for femur so that balanced gait can be gained.
Hope this all will help you.
Feel free to discuss further,

Patient replied :

Yes, the x ray pictures are after doing the surgery.
Is there a chance that splinting will correct the current the current situation ?
if not, at what age it will be safe for her to do acetabular procedures? what is the possible risks of this surgery?

Splinting may help before 4 year of age.After this age acetabular procedure are more helpful.
The general risks which are associated with other surgeries are also associated with this surgery like infection,necrosis of head of femur,etc.
Hope this will help,
