Paediatric Orthopedic Care

Pediatric orthopedic care is dedicated to managing musculoskeletal conditions and injuries in children, recognizing the unique challenges posed by their developing bodies. Tailored care is crucial for effectively addressing these issues. Some common conditions that may require pediatric orthopedic care include:

  1. Fractures and Trauma: Children are especially susceptible to fractures and injuries, often necessitating surgical intervention to realign and stabilize broken bones.
  2. Congenital Deformities: Certain children are born with musculoskeletal deformities, such as clubfoot, hip dysplasia, or limb length discrepancies. Surgical correction may be essential to foster normal development.
  3. Scoliosis and Spinal Deformities: Severe cases of scoliosis or other spinal deformities may warrant surgical treatment to prevent progression and enhance spinal alignment.
  4. Joint Disorders: Conditions like juvenile idiopathic arthritis or developmental dysplasia of the hip may require surgical intervention to alleviate discomfort, enhance joint function, and prevent long-term complications.
  5. Sports Injuries: Young athletes are prone to injuries such as ligament tears or fractures, which may necessitate surgical intervention to restore functionality and prevent lasting issues.
