I am from Worcester and looking for a second opinion for treatment. I was born with CDH, never had surgery because the muscles were holding the joint together. Now at 38 my hip is falling apart. My doctor has recommended arthroscopic surgery because he thinks I am too young for a hip replacement. My hip only started giving me a problem in Novemeber(aside from the life-long waddle) and it has gotten progressively worse to the point of needing a cane to walk now. Would you be able to give me his/her name or a way to contact? My doctor is at UMass and a second opinion there will only end in agreement. Thanks.
