Pediatric Orthopedics Can Be Described As the Study and Treatment of Growing Bones, Joints and Muscles.
A Pediatric Orthopedic Specialist is dedicated to the care of musculoskeletal problems in children and adolescents. Pediatric Orthopedic conditions are relatively common.
At OrthoNOW, we don’t treat teen bones like adult bones, because physically, they’re not. Where your children are treated really matters. Our team of Pediatric Orthopedic specialists at OrthoNOW delivers care to hundreds of kids and teens each year.
Difference Between Pediatric Orthopedics and General Orthopedics?
Orthopedics was formerly oriented only toward treating children with birth defects in their bones – thus the root word “ped” which means “child” – but it has since expanded to all age groups.
Why Should I See a Pediatric Orthopedist?
Pediatric orthopedic specialists have the best training and experience to communicate with your child, getting to the bottom of their injury or condition, while also explaining to them in kid-friendly terms what is going on with their body.
Pediatric orthopedics is a specialization within the orthopedic branch of medicine. An orthopedic physician can choose to focus his or her practice in a subcategory such as pediatric orthopedics for children, sports orthopedics for athletes, or even hip and knee surgery.
