Group Description

This is an international group specifically aimed at adults who had perthes as children.

It is possible that you are now dealing with health issues as a result - direct or indirect - and would like to share your experiences.

We welcome you to sign up and chat to others who understand and may be able to help. We only ask that you treat othes with respect at all times.

The birth rate for perthes is 1:1200 - 4 boys for every 1 girl. So there are many children out there with perthes now, who will one day grow up and face the same problems we have.

There is a group for women's health issues too, where subjects that are specific to women and childbirth can be discussed in a safe and private manner. This group is by invitation only, to existing members of this mixed group. Please post a message here if you wish to receive an invitation to this other group as well.

Please go to www.perthesnz.bravehost.com for a full explanation of what perthes is; what the latest therapies and treatments are; a full medical glossary, explaining the terminology in plain english; an FAQ's page (Frequently Asked Questions) and an online support groups and information page, with links to many medical papers of interest.

Without exception, we do not allow spam on this group and will moderate any that is posted and warn the member. A repeat posting by any member will result in them being removed from the group.
