Hip Surgery and Spica Cast Care: The Parents' Guide
What is this leaflet about?
Produced by STEPS, this booklet is for parents with a child going into a Spica cast following treatment for DDH (Developmental Dysplasia of the Hip) or hip stabilisation. It cannot tell you everything you need to know about what the future may hold, but it will hopefully reassure you and your child. It is also intended to show that practical help, specialist medical information, emotional support, and links to other sources of information are all available, if needed. This will help you to be more prepared for the road ahead and have information to hand so that you can ask informed questions about your child’s care, treatment and prognosis.
