Pediatric orthopaedics specializes in the management and treatment of musculoskeletal conditions that only affect children -- from birth through adolescence. Children are not just small adults, and they require special care to address their needs as they grow and develop.

These health care professionals also provide comprehensive orthopaedic services in the treatment and care of congenital and hereditary disorders, growth-related problems, inflammatory and infectious problems, fractures, sports-related injuries, and multi-system trauma cases.
