Hip screening test

New born hip examination is recommended in the first 3 months of life as soon as possible. Most parents take their new born child for a hip check-up at the age of 3-4 weeks.

Why is the check-up recommended?

During the complex hip examination, it is possible to detect hip problems which are possible to treat well, if discovered early. For the youngest infants, best results are achieved with gentle and less uncomfortable methods.

The examination is especially recommended in the event of:

2222 twins or other multiple babies
2222 birth by Caesarean section
2222 breech position at birth
2222 family history of orthopaedic problems
