Anuja Vaidya -  

Shriners Hospitals for Children˗Northern California in Sacramento is pioneering a new hip surveillance program for children with cerebral palsy.

Here are six notes:

 

1. Medical providers in Australia and Sweden developed hip surveillance programs that include a schedule of regular physical exams and X-rays in children with cerebral palsy.

 

2. These regular physicals and X-rays lead to earlier diagnosis of hip dysplasia, studies have shown.

 

3. Shriners Hospitals for Children-Northern California is pioneering a similar hip surveillance program.

 

4. The hospital is partnering with a number of pediatric providers including California Children's Services; Stanford University, Lucile Packard Children's Hospital; University of California, San Francisco's Benioff Children's Hospital Oakland and Benioff Children's Hospital.

 

5. Together, the organizations will create the California Cerebral Palsy Hip Alliance.

 

6. Recently, Shriners Hospital for Children in partnership with California Children's Services hosted a seminar about the new program.
