Addressing musculoskeletal conditions in children

In the United States, more than 8 million children under 18, or around 10%, suffer from congenital, developmental or acquired musculoskeletal conditions and injuries of the musculoskeletal system. The musculoskeletal system involves bones, ligaments, muscles, soft/connective tissues and tendons, which support the body’s weight, stability and movement.

Our board-certified, fellowship-trained pediatric orthopedists specialize in surgical and non-surgical treatment for children affected by common to complex musculoskeletal conditions and injuries. Bringing expertise and compassion to pediatric patients, our dedicated pediatric orthopedists specialize in timely diagnosis and treatment of children with musculoskeletal conditions or injuries, such as:

  • Bone infection (osteomyelitis).
  • Broken bones.
  • Congenital disorders (clubfoot, hip dysplasia).
  • Growth disturbances (preventing children from developing normal height, weight or sexual maturity).
  • Walking or movement issues (cerebral palsy).
  • Limb deformities.
  • Nerve issues.
  • Septic arthritis (joint infection).
  • Spinal issues (spinal cord inflammation or infection, scoliosis).
  • Sports injuries.
