Our orthopedic providers are dedicated to the care of children and teenagers with injuries. We understand the unique needs of a growing child because of our specialized pediatric training and over 30 years of combined experience in treating only young people.
Children have unique issues related to their growth plates and our team considers many different treatment options because they heal differently than adults.
- Growth plate injuries
- Compounded fractures
- Simple fractures
- Ankle sprain
- Knee sprain
- Knee dislocations
- Elbow dislocations
Care and treatment
Patient services range from assessments and examinations, such as X-rays, casting, splinting and bracing. Fortunately most fractures in children can be treated by a simple cast placed during an office visit, in some cases surgery is required. Additionally rehabilitation may be needed to strengthen the affected body area.
