The Different Perthes Disease Medical Treatments
For those that have been following Celine’s Perthes Disease Journey, you know that we followed the “wait and see” approach using the crutches and sling system. But because I’d like my blog to be a little more rounded I have decided to do a little mini series explaining the more popular medical treatments available for Perthes Disease.
I am going to aim for one post a week explaining a different treatment. Obviously, my first post will be explaining what the crutch and sling system that we used with Celine is and how it worked since that is the one most familiar to me. From there I will move on to some of the other popular methods used today such as the Ex-Fix, Shelf Procedure, Pelvic Osteotomy and any others that I can find information on.
If you have any personal stories about one of these procedures that you wish to share or know of a procedure that you are really interested in learning about, please either comment below or send me a message using the contact me box on the right of the page. I will do my best to find information for you and make a post about it.
