Pediatric Orthopedics

Paediatric orthopaedics is a medical specialty focused on treating deformities of bone, joint, back or muscle in a child. The treatable age includes infants through teenagers.  The deformities can be congenital (present from birth) or due to accidents, strenuous physical activity or growth anomaly. General bone issues in children do not require paediatric orthopaedic care, as any general physician will treat them. But for specific issues, paediatric orthopaedics is sought.

The paediatric orthopaedics is more challenging and evolved than general orthopaedics. Paediatric orthopaedics has to deal with rapidly growing and highly elastic bones. That’s exactly the other way around in general orthopaedics. Certain musculoskeletal issues are found in children but not in adults. Plus, every child may not be able to express his/her issues like an adult can.

Pediatric orthopedic surgeons diagnose, treat, and take care of Kid's musculoskeletal issues, which include:

-  Spine and limb deformities (like scoliosis and club foot)

-  Broken bones

-  Gait disorders (limping)

-  Joint and bone infections

The Pediatric Orthopedic Surgery Service focuses on all areas of musculoskeletal care for newborns, kids, and teenagers. This experience consists of diagnosis and also a surgical and nonsurgical treatment for an array of issues like traumatic injuries, musculoskeletal diseases and skeletal deformities. Common conditions include:

-  Cerebral palsy

Children are not just small adults. They cannot always say what is bothering them, or answer medical questions, or be patient and cooperative during a medical examination.

Pediatric specialist know how to examine and treat children in a way that helps them to be relaxed and cooperative.

They also appreciate the worry that goes with having a child with a musculoskeletal problem and they have experience in communicating with anxious family members.
