Developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) is a childhood condition
caused by abnormal development of one or both hip joints. In DDH, the top of
the thighbone (femur) does not fit securely into the hip socket (acetabulum). This allows the thighbone to either partially or completely slip out of the socket
