Dr Venkatram Thalapalli - Treatment for SCFE at Banjara Hills

Expert in SCFE Treatment at Kukatpally

Slipped Capital Femoral Epiphysis is a hip disorder that may occur during pre-teen or teenage years when the head of the femur slips backward and downward at the growth plate site, also known as the 'neck' region, which contains soft and flexible cartilage.

The growth plate is weaker than the rest of the bone, making it more susceptible to slipping during rapid bone growth.

This condition can develop gradually over time, or it can occur suddenly due to a fall or injury, and may affect one or both hips. Some symptoms of SCFE include groin, knee, or hip pain, stiffness in the hip region, and walking with a limp.

If left untreated, SCFE can lead to restricted blood supply to the femoral head, causing rapid and severe osteoarthritis.

Fortunately, SCFE can be treated with surgery, which aims to prevent further slippage and avoid complications. Dr. Venkatram Thyalapalli is an expert pediatric orthopedician in Hyderabad, with a focus on bone problems. He has treated many children with SCFE and helped them become free of their conditions.

Dr. Venkatram takes a personalized approach to treat SCFE, ensuring that the treatment is carried out smoothly and without complications. He provides post-operative instructions to help speed up the recovery process after surgery.

If your child requires treatment for SCFE, you can book an appointment with Dr. Venkatram Thyalapalli online or by phone.
