Conditions

Treatment options for orthopedic and spine patients are extensive. Recommendations usually depend on the nature of the injury, deformity or disease. Many cases involve sprains, strains, fractures, joint dislocations and scoliosis. Fewer cases are more complicated and may require multiple types of treatments and approaches. In these situations, the orthopedic surgeon may recommend a more complex treatment plan.

The Children’s Orthopaedic & Spine Center treats problems which may be a result of birth defects, congenital anomalies or injuries. Our pediatric orthopedic specialists may treat these ailments conservatively with options that may include physical therapy, medication or casting. Surgery may also be necessary to treat some orthopedic and spine problems.

SCOLIOSIS

Your child’s spine, or backbone, helps hold their body upright. Without it, they wouldn’t be able to walk, run, or play sports.

FOOT OR ANKLE PROBLEMS

If your child is complaining of foot or ankle pain, don’t ignore it. This pain can prevent them from participating in the activities they enjoy.

INJURIES

Children seem to fall down on a regular basis. And when they do, whether it be a minor fall from a standing height or a major fall from the monkey-bars, they often sustain a fracture, or broken bone.

HIP DISORDERS

The hip is the largest joint in your body. With proper range of motion it helps to support the weight of your child’s body.

LIMB DISORDERS

Leg pain in a child can be the result of a vast array of processes , ranging in severity from benign conditions such as ”growing pains” and minor injuries to conditions as sinister as infection and cancer.
