Children are growing, which presents very special challenges when they have orthopaedic issues, such as broken bones, sports injuries and developmental and genetic conditions.
These problems can affect a child's growth plates. The right treatment and follow-up care can limit and completely eliminate the possibility of limb-length and angular deformities. That type of specialized care is available through WakeMed Children's Orthopaedics.
The entire WakeMed team of orthopaedic surgeons, physician assistants, nurses, physical therapists and child life specialists understands the special medical, surgical and emotional needs of pediatric orthopaedic patients.
Together, they have the skill, experience and technology to help children make successful, lifelong recoveries.
