Michigan’s largest orthopaedic team meets the state’s smallest patients. Together, we’re partners in pediatrics.
Treating musculoskeletal issues exclusively in children, our pediatric orthopaedic experts offer comprehensive care for developing bodies. From newborns to young adults, Michigan Orthopaedic Surgeons cares for kids with unique needs – focusing our attention on quick and complete recoveries after injuries, plus long-term treatment plans for more chronic conditions.
Conditions and Treatments
As the largest orthopaedic team in the state, our surgeons are specialty-trained to treat the congenital, developmental and traumatic conditions that affect children’s bones, joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments and nerves.
We can provide surgical and nonsurgical care for:
- Benign and malignant bone/soft tissue tumors
- Bone/ganglion cysts
- Congenital conditions, like cerebral palsy and pseudarthrosis
- Congenital deformities, like clubfoot
- Developmental dysplasia of the hip
- Elbow injuries
- Foot and ankle injuries
- Growth disorders, like Blount’s disease, bow legs and knock knees
- Growth plate injuries, stress injuries and fractures
- Hand and upper extremity injuries
- Hip conditions, like Legg-Calve-Perthes disease and slipped capital femoral epiphysis
- Knee conditions, like Osgood-Schlatter disease
- Limb deformities/length discrepancies
- Lower extremity injuries
- Orthotics and prosthetics
- Pediatric trauma
- Spinal conditions, like scoliosis and kyphosis
- Sports-related injuries
- Sprains and strains
In addition to comprehensive care… we’re also committed to compassion. Our experts know it takes more to make children comfortable, which is why we examine and treat them in ways that will keep them relaxed, cooperative and confident. We even use specialized equipment that was designed with them in mind. And while all four of our pediatric orthopaedic doctors cited “spending time with family” as a personal interest, taking care of yours is their professional passion.
