A child's anatomy and physiology are much different from an adult's. The way children respond physically and emotionally to the hospital environment and medical treatment is also very different.
If your child has an orthopedic injury, disease or disorder that requires medical care, HonorHealth's pediatric orthopedic experts at Scottsdale Shea and at Deer Valley medical centers will provide age-appropriate care and treatment.
These pediatric orthopedic specialists have the expertise to diagnose and treat everything from fractures and acute injuries affecting the muscles, ligaments, tendons and cartilage, to inherited and acquired conditions like scoliosis (curvature of the spine) and more. They understand the basic bone differences in children and how factors like porous bones and growth plates can impact treatment.
Pediatric orthopedics at HonorHealth includes care and treatment of children of all ages — from birth through young adulthood. This includes ongoing medical care and observation, rehabilitation and support services to ensure the best possible outcomes for your child.
Some of the many pediatric orthopedic conditions treated at HonorHealth include:
- Scoliosis (curvature of the spine).
- Fractures and dislocations.
- Growth plate injuries.
- Hip deformities.
- Limb length differences.
- Prosthetics (artificial body parts such as legs and arms).
