Pediatric Orthopedic Surgery


Pediatric Orthopedic Surgery

Pediatric orthopedic surgeons choose to make the care of children the focus of their medical practice. The unique nature of medical and surgical care of children is learned from advanced training and experience in practice.ย 

Children are not just small adults. They cannot always say what is bothering them, or answer medical questions, or be patient and cooperative during a medical examination. Pediatric orthopaedic surgeons know how to examine and treat children in a way that helps them to be relaxed and cooperative.

Pediatric orthopedic surgeons diagnose, treat, and manage childrenโ€™s musculoskeletalย problems including the following:ย 

    • Limb and spine deformities (such as club foot, scoliosis)ย 
    • Gait abnormalities (limping)ย 
    • Bone and joint infectionsย 
    • Broken bonesย
