Legg Calve Perthes

lahenz posted:
My son was diagnosed with Perthes when he was 4 years old and now is 24. He has constant pain and they won't do a hip replacement because of his age. Has anyone had a hip replacement or a hip resurfacement before the age of 30 and been successful from this disease?
