For patients and their families and friends, hip dysplasia is a journey. From diagnosis to treatment to rehabilitation to life after. There are questions asked and relationships established. There is self-assessment of goals and priorities and there are dreams for the future.

But they all lay the path forward. Here, patients, families, caregivers, and friends share their hip dysplasia story. Get ready to be INSPIRED!
