Legg-Calve-Perthes Disease Treatment

Legg-Calvé-Perthes Disease Treatment

Legg-Calve-Perthes disease treatment is intended to preserve the roundness of the femoral head and to prevent deformity while the condition runs its course. Treatment options are dependent upon the amount of hip pain, stiffness, and x-ray changes over time, as well as how much of the femoral head has collapsed. Other treatment goals for Legg-Calve-Perthes disease include controlling pain, maintaining hip motion, and preventing continued hip deformity.
