Pediatric Orthopedic Conditions and Injuries

Orthopedic Associates has one of the few fellowship trained pediatric orthopedic surgeons in the state, and provides a wide range of services to children with orthopedic conditions and diseases.

Ability to treat children of all ages

Common childhood conditions such as in-toeing and gait abnormalities, as well as other disorders including hip instability, clubfeet and limb abnormalities can be evaluated and appropriate treatment options reviewed with parents. Children with acquired disorders such as painful flatfeet, Perthes and rotational lower extremity disorder have several treatment options now. Significant injuries can occur in the pre-adolescent years and surgical repair of injured extremities can improve healing in a predictable manner expediting a return to activities. When conservative measures are not indicated or fail, appropriate surgical intervention may be considered to improve treatment and speed recovery of pediatric orthopedic conditions. When surgery is not necessary, modern treatments including water casts help to lessen the inconvenience of fracture care for some injuries.

Sports injuries in skeletally immature children are unique. Specialized evaluation and care, including surgical treatment when indicated, can maximize and speed recovery.

Overuse injuries in children can often heal quickly when proper diagnosis and treatment occurs.

Children requiring spine evaluation and care for back pain benefit from seeing a pediatric orthopedic specialist.
