Hi

Not sure if I am in the right section.

Here goes anyway.

I had Perthes as a child,I can't remember much about it as I as only 3 years old at the time.
Now 40 years later I have sever pain in my right hip. I have had this pain for about a year now. This pain came on gradually.
I have had several X-rays and an MRI scan done. I was refered for hip replacement surgery. The surgeon I went to see refused to do the surgery because of my age.
I dont want to bore you with all the details but I have been mucked about over the past 8 months going back and forward to see different surgeons with no real outcome as to why I have this hip pain or what can be done about it.
My question is is there any chance I could have perthes again.

Thank you in advance for any replies. x

My age they hate it even more but I found The chain of Mcbride Orthopedic hospitals physician owned and run they do hip knee and shoulders they will not turn you down. WIthin two weeks of meeting dr warren g low I am going in for my replacement. every 20yrs replacement usually.
