Pediatric Orthopedics

What is pediatric orthopedic surgery?

Pediatric orthopedic surgery is the medical specialty that involves musculoskeletal (bone, joint, or muscle) problems in a child who is still growing. Because young children are still growing, their bodies respond differently to injuries and disorders. Pediatric orthopedic surgeons are extensively trained to accommodate this fact.

What conditions does a pediatric orthopedic surgeon treat?

  • Limb and spine deformities at birth or later in life (clubfoot, scoliosis, limb length differences)
  • Gait abnormalities (limping)
  • Broken bones
  • Pediatric fractuers 
  • Bone or joint infections and tumors
