Pediatric orthopaedics is a specialized field of medicine focused on young adults and children with injuries, conditions, and diseases that afflict the bones, joints, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Physicians and surgeons in pediatric orthopaedics are specialists who offer nonsurgical treatment and corrective surgery to help pediatric patients heal from musculoskeletal problems, from broken bones to scoliosis.

Additionally, our highly skilled pediatric orthopaedic doctors also provide fracture and sports medicine care and are proficient in surgical repairs and corrections, including fracture fixation surgery and tendon transfers to repair tendon injuries.
