The specialty of pediatric orthopaedics provides comprehensive care for babies, children and adolescents with musculoskeletal (bone, joint or muscle) problems. When children have these kinds of problems, their bodies' response may be very different from reactions experienced by adults. The unique bone and joint problems that children experience as a result of growth do not happen to adults. Pediatric orthopedists are specialists trained to evaluate musculoskeletal problems in a child who is still growing and provide appropriate non-surgical or surgical treatments to address the problems.
The pediatric orthopedic doctors at the Orthopaedic and Rehabilitation Center at Cohen Children's Medical Center provide world-class medical care and support services to children and adolescents with conditions that include congenital deformity, trauma, scoliosis, bone and joint infection and cerebral palsy. When necessary, our pediatric orthopedics staff coordinates acute and long-term care for children with injuries, disabilities and more complex medical needs.
