Pediatric orthopedic surgery
Surgery may be recommended as part of your child’s care plan. Whenever possible, pediatric surgeons use minimally invasive procedures. Minimally invasive surgical techniques use small incisions and typically lead to a shorter recovery. Some conditions require a more complex surgery. Our pediatric orthopedic surgeons and care team collaborate to review your child's symptoms along with reviewing diagnostic evaluations to create a surgical plan that's right for your child. We have the expertise to perform complex surgeries, including surgery for fractures, scoliosis, bone tumors, hip dysplasia, sports-related injuries, and congenital malformations of the bones.
