Pediatric orthopaedics specializes in the management and treatment of musculoskeletal conditions that only affect children - from birth through adolescence. Children are not just small adults and they require very special care to address their needs as they grow and develop.

Healthcare professionals who provide comprehensive orthopaedic services specialize in the treatment and care of congenital and hereditary disorders, growth-related problems, inflammatory and infectious problems, fractures, and sports-related injuries.
