Re: Diagnosed with legg-perthes disorder when i was a baby.

My son had this when he was 9yrs. old. He was put in a hip brace for 18 months and on cructches for 6.
The doctors at Shriners Hospital in Greeneville, SC told me that sooner or later he would get old man arthritis. "They just hope he would be the age that people normally start having arthritis in the hips."
It's not something that goes away.
He has had pain off and on since then he is now 36yrs. old.
Good Luck.
