Pediatric Care

Pediatric DoctorA child's body responds differently than an adult who is treated for an orthopaedic abnormality or trauma. That’s why it is crucial to treat these injuries or diseases with special consideration for a child's unique needs and concerns.

Our specialists treat all children as if they were their own, recognizing that children's bodies and minds are special and must be cared for accordingly. Each member of this multidisciplinary team is well-versed in treating a variety of conditions affecting children, including:

  • Cerebral palsy
  • Club foot
  • Muscular dystrophy
  • Perthes' disease
  • Scoliosis
  • Skeletal dysplasia
  • Spina bifida
  • Slipped femoral epiphysis
  • Bone tumors
  • Traumatic injuries
  • Sports injuries
  • Fractures and dislocations

Blending leading-edge technological advancements with compassionate care, our staff develops a plan of care that is personalized to fit the needs of each child. Every appropriate treatment option is tried before surgery is considered. If a surgical procedure becomes the right choice, our team of specialists are well trained to correct orthopaedic problems specifically related to children.
