Perthes Disease

Supporting Tiny Hips Through Perthes Disease

Perthes disease, a childhood condition affecting the hip joint, can cause pain and limit mobility. At Medace Clinic, we understand the challenges this condition presents for young patients and their families. We offer comprehensive treatment plans and compassionate care to help your child navigate Perthes disease and achieve healthy hip development.


Understanding Perthes Disease:

Perthes disease disrupts blood flow to the ball of the femur (thigh bone) in the hip joint. This disrupts bone growth and can lead to a misshapen hip joint. The condition typically affects children between 4 and 8 years old and is more common in boys.

Symptoms of Perthes Disease:

Symptoms of Perthes disease can develop gradually and may worsen over time. Here are some common indicators to watch for:

  • Limping: This is the most common symptom, often described as a limp or weakness in one leg.
  • Hip pain: Pain in the hip, groin, or thigh, which may worsen with activity.
  • Limited hip range of motion: Difficulty moving the hip joint through its full range of motion.
  • Reduced leg length: The affected leg may appear shorter than the other.

Diagnosis at Medace Clinic:

Early diagnosis is crucial for successful treatment of Perthes disease. Our doctors will conduct a thorough physical examination to assess your child’s hip mobility and range of motion. Imaging studies like X-rays and MRI scans will be used to visualize the hip joint and confirm the diagnosis.

Treatment Options for Perthes Disease at Medace Clinic:

The treatment approach for Perthes disease depends on the severity and the stage of the condition. Here are some common treatment options:

  • Observation: In mild cases, close monitoring with regular X-rays may be recommended.
  • Bracing: Wearing a special brace can help maintain proper hip alignment and positioning.
  • Physical therapy: Exercises can help improve flexibility, strengthen muscles, and maintain range of motion in the hip.
  • Surgery: In some cases, surgery may be necessary to improve the shape of the hip joint or correct any complications.

I had visited Medace Clinic in Kothanur for my Tennis Elbow issue in my right hand. I was recommended for Physiotherapy treatment. I underwent this treatment for 4 days in the clinic (daily visit for treatment) and was given few exercises to be done at home post that. I got a huge relief from this treatment. The Physiotherapist was very good. She had a good knowledge and was able to get to the exact pain and provided the treatment. My pain has reduced drastically and I am able to do the daily activities without any pain now. Will be joining back to gym as well in 4 to 5 days.

We consulted Dr. Geetika throughout my wife’s pregnancy. Without question, she is a gem of a person, soft spoken and very down to earth. The best thing about her is that you can message her with the slightest doubt on WhatsApp and she is available to respond. She will take the time to listen to you and provide you with the most effective advice to address your current situation and prevent future issues. She is very very easy to talk to. Never prescribed us any unnecessary tests or medicines. She guided us in detail at every step week after week, month after month. We are so happy and proud for having done this journey with her.
Dr. Noel Kumar at Medace Clinic is an exceptional doctor who truly cares about his patients. He has been treating my todler son for the past three months, he has recovered from his femur fracture completely and I have seen a remarkable improvement in his condition. His expertise in the field is very evident in the way he diagnosed, operated and provided post operative care. Dr. Noel takes the time to explain everything in detail and answer any questions we have. He is always available to address our concerns and provide us with the best possible care. The clinic is well-equipped and staffed by friendly professionals who go above and beyond to make us feel comfortable. I would highly recommend Dr. Noel and Medace Clinic to anyone looking for quality orthopedic care.
