Pediatric Orthopaedic Procedures

Pediatric Orthopaedic Procedures

Pediatric orthopedic procedures encompass a wide array of surgical interventions tailored to address musculoskeletal conditions in children. At Dr. Isaac Bone & Joint Speciality Hospital, we specialize in providing comprehensive care for pediatric orthopedic conditions, offering treatment options designed to meet the unique needs of children and adolescents.

Fracture management is a common area of focus in pediatric orthopedics due to children’s active lifestyles and developing bones. Our pediatric orthopedic surgeons are adept at managing fractures using a variety of techniques, including casting, splinting, and surgical fixation, ensuring optimal healing and minimizing the risk of long-term complications.

Another significant aspect of pediatric orthopedics is the correction of congenital deformities such as clubfoot.

Through procedures like the Ponseti method or surgical release, our specialists work to realign the foot and restore normal function, promoting healthy development and mobility in affected children.

Congenital hip dysplasia, a condition where the hip joint is improperly formed, is also a focus of pediatric orthopedic care. Our team employs a range of treatment options, from harnessing and bracing in infants to surgical interventions like pelvic osteotomies in older children, to correct hip anatomy and prevent further complications.

Limb lengthening and deformity correction procedures are essential for children with limb length discrepancies or angular deformities. Techniques such as limb lengthening with external fixators or guided growth using temporary implants help to achieve desired outcomes while preserving growth potential and function.

Scoliosis surgery is another area where pediatric orthopedic expertise is crucial. Our surgeons perform spinal fusion procedures using spinal instrumentation to correct spinal curvature and stabilize the spine, providing relief and improved function for children with severe scoliosis.

Additionally, children with neuromuscular disorders like cerebral palsy or muscular dystrophy may benefit from orthopedic procedures to improve mobility and function. Surgical interventions such as tendon lengthening, muscle releases, or spine stabilization help address contractures, deformities, and gait abnormalities associated with these conditions.

At Dr. Isaac Bone & Joint Speciality Hospital, our dedicated team of pediatric orthopedic specialists is committed to providing compassionate and comprehensive care to children with musculoskeletal conditions. We strive to utilize advanced surgical techniques and evidence-based practices to ensure optimal outcomes and enhance the quality of life for our young patients.
