Pediatric Orthopedic Surgery

We treat all problems in infants, children and adolescents. This includes congenital and developmental problems and deformities, hip and foot problems and problems with the spine and hand, as well as complex fractures and injuries in children and adolescents.

Injuries in children and growing teens are quite different from those in adults. Our physicians have special training in treating these pediatric and adolescent specific injuries.

Children are not small adults. They cannot always say what is bothering them. They cannot always answer medical questions, and are not always able to be patient and cooperative during a medical examination. Pediatric orthopedic surgeons know how to examine and treat children in a way that makes them relaxed and cooperative. In addition, pediatric orthopedic surgeons often use equipment specially designed for children. Most pediatric orthopedic surgeons’ offices are arranged and decorated with children in mind. This includes the examination rooms and waiting rooms, which may have toys, videos and reading materials for children. This helps create a comfortable and non-threatening environment for your child.

If your pediatrician suggest that your child see a pediatric orthopedic surgeon, you can be assured that he or she has the widest range of treatment options, the most extensive and comprehensive training, the greatest expertise in dealing with children, and in treating children’s orthopedic disorders.
