Welcome to the English version of
Hüftdysplasie-Tipps (Hip dysplasia tips)
My principal reason for publishing this webpage on the internet is because I have been suffering from dysplasia in both hips for several years. During this time I
continually searched for a treatment that would remove the permanent pain and would allow
me to return to a normal life, but
unfortunately was unable to find any relevant information on the Internet.
Then, by coincidence, I heard about a "triple osteotomy" being
performed at a hospital in Dortmund, Germany. I pursued this further and in
1997 and again in 2001 I successfully underwent this procedure
in Dortmund on my both hips. While going through the lengthy recovery period I had a lot of time.
|| - to understand the medical condition I was
suffering from in more detail
|| - to improve my PC knowledge
|| - to look up information on the Internet
|| - to create this Homepage
My objective with these pages is to share my knowledge and experience with
hip dysplasia with all who are suffering from the condition or who have an
interest it. I do not have any medical education nor can I give any medical
diagnosis. I only want to share information from patient to patient. This
information and experiences were retrieved from various
sources. Should these pages infringe on anybody's copyrights please send me
an email, and I will remove them immediately. Feedback on experiences with hip
dysplasia and its treatment from patients outside of Germany would be most
Because the English version of this homepage is still under construction,
all information and all current reports of patients that have undergone triple osteotomy surgery
in German, Swiss and Italian hospitals are still only available in German, also the information about the hip dysplasia initiative.
But if you like, you can tell your hip story and get answers to your questions about hip dysplasia on our forum for Hip Dysplasia in English.
