Why should my child see a pediatric orthopedic doctor at Children's?

There are many reasons to bring your child to a pediatric orthopedic specialist for muscle, joint, and bone care:
  • We're trained experts
    Our pediatric orthopedic doctors and surgeons have the advanced training and expertise to provide the most qualified orthopedic care. Caring for kids of all ages is our specialty.
  • We have the most advanced equipment
    Our state-of-the-art equipment helps ensure the best outcomes for our patients. We are one of only a few orthopedic programs in the United States that has an EOS scanner, which provides detailed, 3D images, and limits radiation exposure.
  • We're dedicated to reducing radiation exposure
    We know the importance of limiting radiation exposure whenever possible, so we use systems that expose kids to little or no radiation (X-rays).
  • We'll work with your doctor
    Providing outstanding care is important but so is convenience. We will work with your primary care doctor or provider to share records and develop a follow-up care plan that works for everyone.
  • We're easy to find
    Getting to Children's is easy and parking is always free. We have multiple locations, all providing care closer to home, and including imaging (X-rays), physical therapy, and casting.
