    Hi I was 4.5 when diagnosed with perthes and am now 22. Unfortunately I have no experience with the medical staff you would like to know about, but if there are any other questions you have I'll try and help.

    Not sure where to start, but can tell u as a perthes ginypig, (that may not be fare to docs, i do love them) i am a 50y0 living in usa. perthes hit me at 8 and made my life miserable for 2 years of poking and proding. Thankfully your child will not have to go through the experimentation. HERE'S THE REALY COOL SIDE... 14 YEARS OLD AND IM CAPTAIN OF ATHELECTIC'S on myown merits. 

    Pleaese respond lots more info i can give. Be well

    Your child is very young and therefore he may not need any treatment other than observation smile contact us directly by email and we can then send you an information pack and put you in touch with opther families.

    Not the end of the world but a serious road bump. Research specialists in area, don't procrastinate do what needs to be done. My folks and doc's (not knowing how to deal) put me through 2 years of hell but it all worked out in the end. Yes i needed a hip replacement at 40 but still happy. Had i been born 100 years ago they would have left me on the side of the road. They are good with perthes these days. Damaged goods can be made right and no family member is to blame. hope this helps. be well.
