What are the effect of hip replacement surgery in child?

Dear Doctors, there s an 8-year-old girl with arthrogryposis diagnosis. She needs hip surgery, but many doctors say it should be done after she completes 18 years. Only one Doctor said it must be done immediately. Her parents are hesitating whether to risk or not. Please look through her web-site ( WWW.WWWW.WW and give us an idea. Contact Boghos at YYYY@YYYY . Thanks in advance.

Pediatrician 's  Response
pwrioperative managment is difficult in patients with arthrogryposis and that because there are certain difficulties with venous access , pulmonary care post operatively, cervical instability , and intra operative hyperthermia .
benefits and risks should be weighted after complete physical exam by her health care personel, because early surgery between age 3-12 can be helpful in later stages .
I hope this helps
