At Mayo Clinic's laboratories for Biomechanics and Motion Analysis, specialists in orthopedics and related fields pursue new knowledge and improvements in the reliability, comfort and cost of treating hip dysplasia.

Doctors in the Young Hip Clinic also conduct research. Researchers are particularly interested in determining whether fixing the hip mechanics will prevent the need for a hip replacement later in life.
