Legg-Calve-Perthes care at Mayo Clinic
Your Mayo Clinic care team
At Mayo Clinic, orthopedic surgeons work with radiologists, physical therapists and other specialists to evaluate and treat people with Legg-Calve-Perthes disease. This means that you're getting more than just one opinion — you benefit from the knowledge and experience of each specialist on the multidisciplinary team.
Advanced diagnosis and treatment
Perfusion MRI is an option at Mayo Clinic. This advanced form of MRI can show how much blood is getting to the femoral head, which helps in choosing appropriate treatments for children with Legg-Calve-Perthes disease. The latest surgical techniques are available, as are physical therapists that specialize in the care of children.
Pediatric orthopedic surgeons collaborate closely with adult hip surgeons to provide the full complement of care for adolescents with Legg-Calve-Perthes disease.
