Paediatric Orthopaedics

Paediatric orthopaedics handles the orthopedic treatment of any bone, joints or muscle problems faced by children of all ages.

This is due to the fact that children are still growing and the body’s response to any musculoskeletal problem may be quite different from an adult for the same problem. Congenital deformities in certain cases can resolve with time or may need to be surgically treated. Working in tandem with the paediatric general surgery specialists and the paediatric tertiary care centre of the hospital, the department offers the best orthopedic treatment for children and adolescents.

• Infections in bone or joints
