Pediatric orthopedics

Pediatric orthopedists are doctors who specialize in joint problems in infants, children and adolescents. They diagnose and treat injuries and conditions of the musculoskeletal system, which includes the bones, joints and limbs. Common reasons to see them include broken bones, fractures, knee or hip injuries and scoliosis.

Pediatric sports medicine and orthopedic care in Kansas City

As children develop, they can be succeptible to injuries or other developmental disorders that affect their bones and joints. We work to help keep them active.

The pediatric and sports medicine specialists at HCA Midwest Health facilities offer personalized, expert diagnosis and treatment for conditions affecting the bones, muscles and joints. Treating children of all ages, we work to understand their unique circumstances so we can help them work towards living how they wish.

Pediatric orthopedic conditions we treat

Some of the most common conditions and injuries we treat in children include:

  • Breaks and sprains
  • Bone, muscle and joint infections
  • Club foot
  • Congenital Torticollis
  • Fractures and sprains
  • Growth plate issues (breaks or fractures)
  • Hip dysplasia
  • Overuse injuries

  • Sports injuries

Children experience muscle, bone and joint conditions differently than adults. Young bodies need specialized care for injuries and illnesses that impact their musculoskeletal system. Whether a child has a congenital condition, a sports injury or an illness, our pediatric doctors are ready to provide advanced, complete orthopedic care.

Compassionate pediatric orthopedics

Whether we first see the patient in one of our clinics or in one of our emergency rooms, they will experience our compassion and commitment to exceptional treatment and positive recovery. We understand that, to children, going to the hospital can feel overwhelming and frightening. That's why we work hard to reduce their anxieties and make their stay with us as pleasant as possible. We provide a cheerful, kid-friendly environment that makes even the tiniest patients and their parents feel relaxed.

Our pediatric orthopedic doctors pride themselves on the amount of time we spend with our patients and their caregivers during consultations. We allow patients and their families to spend time with the orthopedic surgeon and ask questions, ensuring they feel comfortable with their child's care.
