About Pediatric Orthopedics
Whether your child has a broken bone or has a complex spine or bone condition, our orthopedic specialists at Hasbro Children's Hospital have many years of experience caring for children and adolescents with orthopedic problems. Treatment ranges from the non-operative management of musculoskeletal conditions to advanced surgical techniques.
Our team of orthopedic specialists have fellowship training in pediatric orthopedics and offer the full spectrum of pediatric orthopedic care. We work with pediatric oncologists and radiologists to treat soft tissue tumors, and are experts in limb-sparing surgical techniques.
Conditions We Treat
The conditions we treat range from common problems and injuries to the most complex musculoskeletal conditions, diseases and injuries - including fixing fractures, correcting curved spines, reconstructing limb deformities, and treating musculoskeletal tumors, both benign and malignant.
We specialize in the following areas:
- Spine disorders and injuries
- Hip conditions
- Upper and lower extremity deformities and injuries
- Sports injuries
- Orthopedic trauma
- Musculoskeletal oncology
- Neuromuscular conditions
Many conditions are managed without surgery, but surgery may be required to fix fractures, correct limb deformities, correct curved spines or lengthen short limbs. If your child requires surgery to correct an orthopedic condition, we offer a preoperative teaching program (POP) to familiarize you and your child with the surgical experience.
