Is something preventing your child from growing properly? Trust us to correct your child’s growth problems and injuries, from birth to early adulthood. Change the way your child grows. For good.
Some of the most common pediatric orthopaedic conditions include:
- Scoliosis: A sideways curve of your spine (backbone). Severe cases can lead to deformity and other issues.
- Hip dysplasia: The hip socket is too shallow where the top of your child’s thigh bone (femur) is supposed to snugly fit. This causes the thigh bone to slip out of place.
- Clubfoot: Feet are rotated, pointed down, or the bottom of the foot may even be facing up.
- Leg length discrepancy: One leg is shorter or longer than normal. Often caused by a broken bone that did not heal properly, cancerous tumors, or infections.
- Broken bones: Bones can break because of a fall, a blow to a bone, or a sharp twist. If you suspect your bone is fractured, immediately take your child to an urgent care facility.
- Osgood-Schlatter disease: Swelling or a defined lump below the knee caused by a child’s growth or joint stress from playing sports.
How are these conditions treated? Our diagnostic and treatment teams work with your pediatrician to create a plan that may include physical therapy, medication, or surgery. We work to improve your child’s physical progression.
When should you talk to your doctor? Talk to your doctor as soon as you notice any type of misalignment, deformity, pain, or difficulty moving around.
