Pediatric Care

Bone Health for Children & Young Adults

A child’s body goes through rampant, extreme changes in a very small amount of time. Our anatomy is built for this rapid change, and most children do not experience any sort of joint or bone pains outside of injury. There are rare occasions, however, when a condition interferes with the child’s ability to grow, and this is when it’s time to see a pediatric orthopedist. These injuries and conditions could permanently affect the child’s ability to grow and develop, making it imperative that you see proper medical attention right away so that your loved one can receive the treatment they need.

We employ a team of medical professionals who are well versed in treating a variety of conditions affecting children, including:

  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Club foot
  • Muscular Dystrophy
  • Perthes' Disease
  • Scoliosis
  • Skeletal Dysplasia
  • Spina Bifida
  • Fractures
  • Dislocations
  • Overuse injuries
