Patient Resources

At Miles4Hips we believe that patients have the right and the responsibility to be active participants in their medical care.  We aim to meet the information needs of patients by providing accurate, unbiased, reliable information about hip dysplasia, diagnosis, treatment options, surgical care, rehabilitation, and prognosis/outcomes.  We believe that when patients are educated and informed they can more effectively collaborate with their medical providers to make sure that they receive the best treatment plan of care for them.
