Hip dysplasia is a medical condition in infants that can require surgery if not timely detected. Pediatricians are trained to perform specific tests to determine whether a child has this condition and if diagnosed, should start treatment immediately. A delay in the treatment can result in multiple surgeries on the child and a lifetime of disability. This could give rise to a medical malpractice lawsuit.
