Legg Calve Perthes Disease
ttajalle posted:
My younger brother was diagnosed when he was an 8th grader; he went through the surgery with the metal plate in his hip and all that, but he still needs it taken out. Getting straight to the point, he still has his limp and wants to be more comfortable in shoes. He is a sophomore for he will be doing a lot of walking around in the high school. Does anyone know of a custom shoe place that specializes in the disease? Preferably in the Dallas area (Mckinney, Plano, Allen) Please respond as soon as possible, it would be greatly appreciated. You can email me the info at or just respond to this discussion. Thanks!
