Pediatric Orthopedics is the treatment of muscles, bones, and joints for children. Pediatric Orthopedics is unique because children's bodies are growing, therefore, they respond differently to injury than that of an adult. Additionally, there are specific conditions that only occur in children.
Most likely your child will be referred to Saint Alphonsus Pediatric Orthopedics by your pediatrician, emergency medicine physician, or family practitioner, but sometimes you may elect to bring your child as a result of a suspected fracture, pain, or concern. We welcome any questions or concerns.
