Miles4Hips believes that care and outcomes for hip dysplasia patients will be optimized when patients partner with medical providers and researchers.

If you are a hip dysplasia patient, please visit our site to have the opportunity to participate in hip-dysplasia related research projects from around the world.  This is a great way to have a voice, share your experience, and help improve the lives of people living with hip dysplasia.

If you are a researcher, please feel free to share information about your projects with us.  We would love to help you recruit participants so that you can contribute to the literature and knowledge base for this diagnosis and patient population.
