What is Developmental Dysplasia Of The Hip?

Developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) is a condition that is characterized by improper joining of the ball and socket in the hip, which is responsible for connecting the femur to the pelvis. This is because the ball and socket are not formed properly in babies, which is why this condition is also known as congenital hip dislocation.
