Pediatric Orthopedics

What is pediatric orthopaedics?

Pediatric orthopaedics is carefully designed for children’s bone-related issues. Children’s bodies don’t respond to fractures, injuries, infections, and deformities in the same way as adults. For instance, a child may outgrow some health issues over time. What’s more, diagnosing and treating a child is quite different from how you would diagnose and treat an adult — even for the same medical problem.

Pediatric and congenital hand surgery addresses the unique medical needs of children. It’s specialized care for trauma and nerve injuries involving your child’s hands, wrists, shoulders, elbows, or arms.

What does pediatric orthopaedics treat?

Common injuries that can be treated include:

  • Trauma
  • Nerve injuries
  • Breaks and fractures
  • Limb deformities
  • Bone infections or tumors

Dr. Harris Rose and his team at Precision Bone and Joint also treat trauma related to pediatric orthopaedics, particularly in these areas:

  • Hand trauma: one of the five most common childhood injuries. Younger children are more likely to get their fingers crushed, while older children are more likely to hurt their hands playing sports.
  • Arm or elbow trauma: a hard fall can lead to a fracture in your child’s arm or elbow. This is very common — in fact, half of children’s fractures occur in the forearm, and one in 10 are in the elbow.
  • Shoulder trauma: this injury can occur in a variety of ways, including a direct blow to a shoulder, falling on an outstretched arm, or twisting or bending a shoulder in an abnormal way.

How are children’s injuries treated?

Your child is unique, and needs customized care tailored to his or her condition or injury. At Precision Bone and Joint, Dr. Harris Rose and his team design a treatment plan that’s right for your child’s health issue.

Your child’s plan is based on a variety of factors, including the extent of the injury, and your child’s medical history and overall condition. As an expert in trauma and nerve injuries, particularly those involving your child’s hands, wrists, and arms, Dr. Rose provides care to set your child on the path to recovery.
