Health professionals

VicHip was established to help deliver the best care and treatment outcomes for people with hip dysplasia.

To achieve this, we recognise the power of collaboration and invite you to consider working with us. If you are a hip health professional, we'd love to hear from you.

We work with many hip specialists, including orthopaedic surgeons, paediatricians, physiotherapists, orthotists, sonographers, midwives and nurses. Our collective efforts are dedicated to enhancing the quality of hip care and services throughout Victoria.

We aim to provide clinicians with the information and tools they need to accurately diagnose and treat hip dysplasia. By establishing a common understanding of the screening and diagnostic evidence, we hope to achieve a unified approach to the treatment and management of hip dysplasia.

This could improve patient care and outcomes for all age groups and lower the risk of a child developing long-term disability, painful osteoarthritis or the need for hip replacement surgery.
