About Pediatric Orthopedics

Your child’s bone and joint health is important to their growth and development. From diagnosis to treatment and recovery, we are with your family every step of the way. Our pediatric orthopedic doctors and surgeons care for children and teens with sports injuries and orthopedic diseases and conditions. At Ascension sites of care, we start by listening to understand your concerns and your child’s healthcare needs. Then, we create a care plan that’s right for your child. Our doctors diagnose and treat:

  • Bone cancer (osteosarcoma)
  • Bone diseases
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Congenital deformities
  • Fractures and broken bones
  • Leg length discrepancy
  • Multiple dystrophy
  • Muscular dystrophy
  • Scoliosis
  • Spina bifida
  • Sports injuries
  • Sprains and strains
  • Other orthopedic conditions

Sports medicine for children and teens

Playing sports can be a big part of your child's life. Sports can lead to concussions, sprains, strains, broken bones and other sports injuries. Whether your child has a minor sports injury or needs more advanced care — we’re here for your family. Our orthopedic doctors are trained in bone and joint care for kids and understand how injuries in growing children and adolescents are different from injuries in adults. We deliver non-surgical options for treatment and, when needed, surgical care for fractures and more. Our care team helps you and your child understand how to help prevent future injuries.

Get a second opinion on your child's bone or joint condition

Getting a second opinion can provide you with more information about your child’s bone and joint condition. It may also increase your confidence in your child’s care plan. Our pediatric doctors are part of an integrated, national network of pediatric specialists, sharing best practices and offering advanced care options. Ask if a virtual visit is an option for your child’s second opinion consultation.

If your child is experiencing a life-threatening emergency, go directly to the ER or call 911.
