At Casper Orthopedics, our fellowship-trained pediatric orthopedic doctor is an expert in assessing, diagnosing, and treating orthopedic injuries and conditions in children.

A pediatric orthopedic doctor is a medical professional who specializes in providing care for children of all ages with bone, joint, and muscle injuries and conditions. These musculoskeletal problems can range from limb and spine deformities to fractures and sports-related injuries. Pediatric orthopedic doctors also see children who have experienced a traumatic accident or fall.

Because pediatric orthopedic doctors have undergone extensive education and training, they have a deep understanding of the many orthopedic problems a child can face as well as how these problems can affect a growing musculoskeletal system. They also know how to carefully listen to children and work with them and their parents to create a personalized treatment plan.

When Should Your Child Visit a Pediatric Orthopedic Doctor?

It’s important to be aware of the specific issues surrounding your child’s pain so you can help your child tell their doctor what they are experiencing. Sharing this information with your child’s doctor can help him or her better understand what might be causing your child’s pain and what treatment to offer. Here are some common symptoms that children with orthopedic injuries and conditions experience:

  • Limited range of motion
  • Lower back pain
  • Pain when walking or moving
  • Problems sleeping due to pain
  • Swelling or stiffness
  • Tingling or numbness

If your child has any of these symptoms or is experiencing another type of bone, joint, or muscle pain, they may have one of the following injuries or conditions:

  • Deformity
  • Fracture of one of the extremities
  • Sports-related injury
  • Sprain
  • Strain
  • Traumatic injury

To treat your child’s orthopedic injury or condition, our pediatric orthopedic doctor will exhaust all conservative treatment options before recommending surgery. Please be assured that if orthopedic surgery is necessary, our surgeon uses state-of-the-art technology to perform the latest surgical procedures.

Our pediatric orthopedic specialist understands that bone, joint, or muscle pain can alter your child’s life, and he is dedicated to getting your child back to the activities they love.
