Hip Surveillance Program

IWK Health in collaboration with Nova Scotia Health has launched a Hip Surveillance Program for children and youth with Cerebral Palsy. 

Hip surveillance is a plan for regular check-ups of your child’s hips. Children and youth with cerebral palsy (CP) are at higher risk for their hip sliding or being out of the joint. Hip surveillance aims to pick up on these problems so that they can be treated early.
