Pediatric Orthopedics at Mercyhealth Orthopedic Center of Excellence
Children’s growing bones, ligaments, tendons and nerves require a special skill-set to treat in the event of an accident, birth defect or illness.
Mercyhealth treats your child as you would – with gentleness and understanding – when circumstances, like accident or disease, cause them to need an orthopedic specialist.
Parents can do their part by monitoring their child’s athletic activities and making sure they have the proper equipment to keep their bones and joints safe.
Not only does Mercyhealth treat the bumps and scrapes of everyday play, we help children overcome orthopedic problems that stem from birth or health issues, such as:
- Club foot
- Juvenile arthritis
- Sprains, dislocations or fractures, including growth plate fractures
Mercyhealth Orthopedic Center of Excellence’s specialists offer a range of treatments from conservative to more invasive: physical therapy, orthopedic devices, injection therapies and reconstruction surgery.
