If you or someone in your family has hip dysplasia, this is the book for you. Whether you were diagnosed as a child, or developed dysplasia in later life, you will find this book informative, supportive, and a friend in times of need. You are not alone. It is also a great resource if you're having a hip replacement for any reason.
A Guide for Adults with Hip Dysplasia is the book we wish we'd had decades ago. This is the first book for adults with this disabling condition. It is written in easy to understand plain English, without masses of medical jargon. It is available worldwide as both a paperback and a PDF eBook edition (both published on Lulu.com).
Recommended by surgeons, doctors and patients worldwide.
What the doctors are saying:
'A Guide for Adults with Hip Dysplasia' is an important, timely and helpful book for patients or families that have been touched by hip dysplasia. Until now, information for adults has been limited, especially compared to the amount of information available for children with hip dysplasia. This book fills that void in a caring way, that is informative and easy to read.
This book should be recommended reading for doctors and patients alike. Sophie West and Denise Sutherland have given a true gift to anyone with hip dysplasia.

This is a well written book addressing a very unique clinical condition affecting significant number of people all over the world, [written] from a patient's perspective. The condition itself can remain undiagnosed and can come as a surprise for many patients in their adulthood. The fact that a major procedure is involved in its treatment, adds to the worries of our patient population.
While discussions with a clinician can help to some extent, this book gives comprehensive information about this clinical condition, and thereby reduces [patients'] anxiety. The book makes the reader feel that s/he can reach for a helping hand throughout the treatment process.
