Kaylie was born at home. She was taken to her pediatrician’s office to be examined. Everything seemed to be going well until her pediatrician noticed that Kaylie seemed to have hip dysplasia. The doctor told Kaylie’s parents that she was going to refer their baby to a pediatric orthopedist. Kaylie’s parents informed the pediatrician that their insurance only covered well baby visits.
Luckily, the pediatrician is a Young & Healthy volunteer and called us right away.
Our case managers were ablt to connect the family with Shriner’s Hospital for Children. Thankfully, Kaylie’s condition is one that is easily remedied. She will continue to receive follow up care and is well on her way to being a normal, happy and active infant!
