Abstract: This paper aims to present our considerations on the advantages of early clinical and paraclinical diagnosis, followed by early initiation of treatment in developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH). We studied the new cases presenting for consultation with the suspicion of developmental dysplasia of the hip in the ambulatory section of Pediatric Orthopedics of the Clinical Rehabilitation Hospital Cluj-Napoca, in the period 2011-2012. DDH treatment should be staged from simple to complex and extended, with all the caution required, for the prevention of complications: abduction pants, abduction devices, traction in bed, tenotomy, plaster immobilization, surgery (bleeding reduction, various types of osteotomy, followed by plaster immobilization).
