Socheata underwent a hip procedure that will help her move more easily.

Socheata had a complex hip surgery by surgeons at our medical partner Children’s Surgical Centre to tighten her hip joint capsule to prevent recurring joint dislocation. Because her hip was proactively corrected at such a young age, Socheata will learn to walk properly and curb future mobility difficulties as she grows older. Her family has spent time with the physiotherapy team to help her ambulate once her spica cast is removed. Socheata can now look forward to a full, healthy childhood.

Socheata’s mom shared, “I’m so relieved her hip was fixed so she can run and play like a normal child. Thank you to the donors who supported her to have this surgery.”

Socheata is a 2-year-old girl from Cambodia. Her mother works as a guard for a private company and her father works in IT. Socheata is the first child in her family, and lives with her grandmother in their home province while her parents work in the city to earn for their family. Her grandparents are both farmers. Socheata likes to play with toys, watch TV, color cartoon figures, and go to the market along with her grandmother.

Socheata was born with a congenital hip dislocation. As a result, when she tries to walk or run, it hurts her and makes a clicking sound. Socheata’s parents were referred to our Medical Partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), and traveled 2.5 hours to seek treatment. At CSC, she was diagnosed with developmental dysplasia of the hip. Socheata has difficulty walking and feels sad when she cannot keep up with her family and friends when they play.

On March 3rd, surgeons at CSC will perform capsulorrhaphy of Socheata’s right hip in order to relocate and secure her hip and restore of range of motion. Now, Socheata needs help to fund this $518 procedure and help her move around more easily.

Socheata’s parents hope that after this procedure, their daughter will be able to grow and walk normally.
