Is hip dysplasia related to air pockets in the knees?

Im 17 years old and am currently waiting to see a orthopedic surgeon for my hip dysplasia in my left hip. In the past 3 weeks whenever I bend my knees it feels like theres air pockets in them and i have to straighten then really fast otherwise i feel like they would get stuck. I was wondering if this has anything to do with my hip dysplasia? Thank you!

Hello,

Hip dysplasia is a congenital problem and it has got nothing to do with the knee. Consult an orthopaedic and he will direct you accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
