Hi,

Just wondering if there is anyone out there who has children that have this condition? My lil was diagnosed with this at 2 days old.
Looking for some support

Hi, Have you got the correct name for the Dysplaysia? I have a genetic condition called shmidtz metaphyseal achondraplaysia. I think your first port of call should be to try and get to see a specialist peds othopedic surgeon. Not too sure where you live but there is specialists at Sheffield and Oswestry. Oswestry are fantastic they were the one's who diagnosed me when I was 12 even though mine is so rare (own hospital had no idea what was wrong with me). We are just waiting to see if Thomas has got Shmidtz but they can't tell us until he is at least 2yrs old. Not sure if iv'e been any help but there is definatley specialist out there that can help.

hi fletchie.

i do no bits about congenital hip dysplasia as they though georgia had it and she had to have xray but turns out shes fine.

the fact that ur lo was dianosed at early age means that they will be able to treat her easily.
