Children’s has one of the highest volume pediatric orthopaedic programs in the country. We are ranked among the top pediatric orthopaedic programs by U.S.News and World Report.
Our Orthopaedics Program is made up of a multidisciplinary team that includes pediatric-trained orthopaedic surgeons, primary care sports medicine physicians, physical and occupational therapists, orthotists, prosthetists and certified athletic trainers. This team provides care for thousands of patients who require specialized medical and surgical treatment for musculoskeletal conditions such as scoliosis, congenital anomalies and deformities like polydactyly and trauma, and in sports-related injuries like a rotator cuff repair.
Why do volumes matter?
You want an experienced team to care for your child whether they are visiting Children’s for a minor injury or serious condition. Our high volumes mean we can provide dedicated orthopaedic staff, facility space and technology to our patients and their families. When children come to our Orthopaedic Program, patients will have access to the latest minimally invasive techniques, treatments and research. Whether he is a starting center with a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) or a toddler with hip dysplasia, we have what he needs to get better faster.
Why are outcomes important?
The Orthopaedics team at Children’s is actively involved in ongoing research and continuing education. This allows us to continually evaluate our treatments and ensure we are providing the best possible care to our patients.
