Why Pediatric and Adolescent Sports Medicine?
Children aren't small adults - their bodies are still growing and changing, and can't always be treated with the same techniques and equipment used for adults. All Children's Hospital offers an entire facility designed for pediatric and adolescent medicine - from the appropriately-sized equipment in the therapy gym, to special equipment in the radiology unit, where the machines are designed to expose patients to less radiation than those in an adult facility. But our greatest strength is our specialists and their expertise in pediatric and adolescent medicine. From nurses to therapists, from radiologists to surgeons, medical practitioners at All Children's Hospital are experts in treating growing patients.
