Pediatric orthopedics

Pediatric orthopedists are doctors who specialize in joint problems in infants, children and adolescents. They diagnose and treat injuries and conditions of the musculoskeletal system, which includes the bones, joints and limbs. Common reasons to see them include broken bones, fractures, knee or hip injuries and scoliosis.

Pediatric orthopedic services

We work to make sure that you never have to worry about where to take your child to get expert orthopedic care, regardless of whether you live in the city or in a surrounding rural county.

Our goal is to form a close bond with both you and your child so that we can fully understand their condition and how to improve it. If your child has an unexpected injury or develops a complex musculoskeletal issue, we commit with the same level of care and dedication for a single visit as we do for ongoing rehabilitation and management.

While we always prioritize nonsurgical treatments, our board-certified pediatric orthopedic surgeons and pediatric spine specialists are ready to employ both traditional surgical methods and minimally invasive options. If the condition allows, minimally invasive surgery affords your child less scarring, a faster recovery and a shorter hospital stay, should that be necessary.

We strive to create a comfortable environment for you and your child, ensuring that all of your questions are answered. Please check with your insurance to see if a referral is required from your physician.
