NC73.0/S73.0 Dislocation of hip



Dislocation of hip is a common injury caused by a trauma to the hip joint, such as a fall or a motor vehicle accident. It is also seen in some medical conditions, such as cerebral palsy or hip dysplasia.


Diagnosis is usually made by physical examination, but imaging studies such as X-rays or MRI may be necessary to confirm the diagnosis.

Differential diagnosis

Differential diagnosis includes other hip injuries such as fractures, hip sprains, and hip bursitis.


Treatment of hip dislocation depends on the severity of the injury. In some cases, the hip can be put back into place without surgery. Other cases may require surgery to repair the ligaments or tendons involved.


The prognosis for hip dislocation depends on the severity of the injury, the type of treatment, and the patient’s overall health. Generally, if the injury is treated promptly and properly, the prognosis is good.
