At the Children’s Orthopaedic Center, our team of world-renowned orthopedic surgeons, nurse practitioners and physician assistants provide complete and individualized care for your child. Our team will diagnose and attempt to remedy medical problems related to the human skeleton, joints, tendons and ligaments. We treat problems which may be a result of birth defects, congenital anomalies or injuries. Our 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 problems.
Treatment options for orthopedic patients are extensive. Recommendations usually depend on the nature of the injury, deformity or disease. Many cases involve sprains, strains, fractures or joint dislocations. 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, including reconstructive surgery.
