What is Pediatric Orthopedic surgeon

A pediatric orthopedic surgeon is the best trained and most experienced doctor to properly evaluate and treat musculoskeletal (bone, joint, or muscle) problems in a child who is still growing.

What types of problems do pediatric orthopaedic surgeons treat?

A child’s musculoskeletal problems are different from those of an adult. Because children are still growing, their body’s response to injuries, infections, and deformities may be quite different than what it would be seen in a full-grown person. Sometimes, what is thought to be a problem is just a variation of growth that will resolve with time. Many of the problems children have with their bones and joints do not even occur in adults. And, for the same problem that an adult might have, the evaluation and treatment is usually quite different for a child. Children with complex pediatric problems are best managed by a medical-surgical team approach.

Pediatric orthopaedic surgeons diagnose, treat, and manage children’s musculoskeletal problems in children, such as:

  • Limb and spine deformities noted at birth, or later in life (clubfoot, scoliosis, congenital hip dislocation, limb length differences)
  • Gait abnormalities (limping)
  • Broken bones
  • Bone or joint infections and tumors
Why do Children need special Orthopaedic Surgeons?
Children are not just small adults. They cannot always say what is bothering them, or answer medical questions, or be patient and cooperative during a medical examination. Paediatric orthopaedic surgeons know how to examine and treat children in a way to help them be relaxed and cooperative. They appreciate the worry that goes with having a child with a musculoskeletal problem and they have experience in communicating with anxious family members. Most pediatric orthopaedic surgeons’ offices are arranged and decorated with children in mind. Specially designed equipment, available toys, videos, and reading materials all help to create a comfortable and nonthreatening environment for the child.
