The Legg-Calve-Perthes Center at Cincinnati Children’s is comprised of experts with more than 35 years of experience treating children with Legg-Calve-Perthes disease. We offer multidisciplinary care for a multidimensional disease.
Legg-Calve-Perthes is a disease of the hip in which the head of the femur (thighbone) that sits in the hip joint breaks down. We provide nonsurgical and surgical treatments with the primary goals of preventing deformity and maintaining range of motion of the hip joint.
