Perthes: Emma’s Story (Clip from “The Intelligencer”)

Emma has successfully overcome Perthes disease, a rare childhood condition that affects the hip, with the expertise of pediatric orthopedic surgeon Dr. Shawn Standard at the International Center for Limb Lengthening. She is now able to enjoy playing soccer, swimming and horseback riding and has helped other children with Perthes by raising money for the Rubin Institute for Advanced Orthopedics’ Save-A-Limb Fund.
