The Parents’ Guide to Perthes – Charles T. Price MD & Betsy Miller

The Parents’ Guide to Perthes is a reassuring guide for parents learning how to handle their child’s condition. Written in everyday language, this book explains how Perthes is diagnosed, how it progresses through stages, and how the age of the child at onset affects the course of the disease.

Illustrations and x-ray examples show the effects of Perthes in the hip joint for different children. The book describes how doctors develop a treatment plan and includes first-person accounts from parents and children about their Perthes experiences.
