Suspected dysplasia in a child. What kind of doctor do we need for an examination?
Were at a scheduled admission in the children's consultation, the pediatrician said that it looks like the child develops dysplasia. Why such conclusions, I did not understand. We are 9 months old, the daughter still does not walk. How did she define it? Said - show the specialist. Everything, more than any advice and even the direction did not write out.

Go to another pediatrician. I think this is something strange. Where does the diagnosis come from? Refer to the surgeon for children, immediately say whether there is pathology or not.

I think that first of all you need to change the pediatrician. Why do doctors like to scare parents so much?

You need to contact an orthopedist. If you still have any suspicions that the disease still has a child.Our pediatrician also said that there are subjective reasons that suggest to her that the baby still needs to be shown to the doctor. The folds on the legs are asymmetrical; this can be a sign of dysplasia. I can tell you how an orthopedist was found for us in Moscow. I decided to seek a doctor through the Internet. At first, I simply read reviews from moms who had dysplasia in children. One mother said that she had found a good doctor through an online service. Very convenient. Immediately look for the area where the doctors take this specialization. Read reviews on the site, see the doctor's rating and the work experience is also indicated there. I found there a good doctor for my daughter, now we are seeing him!
