The pediatric orthopedic professionals and programs at the ProMedica Orthopedic Institute are focused on helping children and their families regain healthy lives. These professionals meet the health needs of children experiencing a range of conditions, from developmental delays to abnormalities.
Unlike the care of adults seeking orthopedic care, lessening and eliminating pain is not the biggest challenge in pediatric orthopedics. Instead, the focus is on addressing deformities such as hip dysplasia, club feet, crooked spines or legs of unequal length. The goal is to understand why these children have these conditions and how to intervene to change the natural history.
Just as orthopedic surgery may be part of the plan of care and treatment for your child, so is pediatric rehab or physical therapy.
