WHAT MAKES AN PEDIATRIC ORTHOPEDIC SURGERY PROGRAM UNIQUE

Kids’ bones grow. That’s why, when it comes to kids, pediatric orthopedic specialists and surgeons are so important—the way they care for kids today has to anticipate not only where they are now, but where they’ll be five or ten years down the road.

Our team understands kids’ growth and developmental stages, and we design each pediatric orthopedic procedure and rehabilitation plan with an eye toward how each child will grow. For complex patients with long-term needs, we offer continuity of care into young adulthood and help them transition to an adult provider when they’re ready.

No matter if your child has a broken arm, a sport-related injury or a complex spine condition, rest assured they will receive state-of-the-art care administered with compassion and kindness.

From congenital differences to sports injuries and pediatric orthopedic conditions, it doesn’t matter what we’re seeing a patient for, we always put them first. We work hard to address your concerns and make sure the treatment plan is clear to you and your family.
