Orthopaedics - Pediatrics
Our pediatric orthopaedic specialists evaluate and treat musculoskeletal (bone, joint, muscle and deformity) problems in infants, children and teens, such as scoliosis.
Children's musculoskeletal systems are still forming, so their response to injuries are often different than those seen in an adult. Growth plates are typically located at the end of the bones. Pediatric orthopedic surgeons protect and promote healthy bone growth while treating skeletal disease in children.
Orthopaedic injuries found in children are fractures through the growth plates, commonly around the wrist, knee, ankle and shoulders. Injuries are also common around the elbow, or supracondylar fractures.
Marshall Health partners with Hoops Family Children’s Hospital at Cabell Huntington Hospital to deliver specialized orthopaedic excellence for our pediatric patients.
