Breech birth and hip dysplasia

I am back from the doctors and now I am very scared. The baby is pretty large for dates, I measure at 37.5 weeks because of his size. She says 8-9lbs, but its not a sure thing of course. We are scheduling a c-section at 39 weeks since he is still frank breech and doesn't appear to have room to turn at this point. What concerns me is that the doctor mentioned there is a chance he could have hip problems. Due to the fact that he has been breech for sometime, he is most likely not getting much movement in his legs. Apparently the hip sockets MAY not be bale to fuse. She said there is a chance, not definitive, but I am still very scared about this.

Does anybody know about this condition? Please, give me all of the info you can because I am very scared right now. I can't help but think I could of done something to avoid this.
