Making Sure Kids Grow into Healthy Adults
Children especially are prone to orthopaedic conditions and injuries because their bodies are in a constant state of growth. We understand that children are still growing and require specially trained experts with experience treating their unique needs. Whether it’s a broken bone, scoliosis, a sports injury or a developmental disorder, we’re here to help kids grow into healthy adults.
Our clinical and support staff is specially trained to care for children from infants to adolescents. Our team includes orthopaedic surgeons, physical and occupational therapists, physiatrists, neurosurgeons and neurologists, rheumatologists, pulmonologists, cardiologists, nurses and nurse practitioners, physician assistants and orthopaedic technicians.
