Pediatric Orthopedics

If your child breaks a bone or has a bone- or muscle-related disorder, where do you go? Why, to the region’s only pediatric orthopedists, right here at the Children’s Hospital of Georgia. Together, our team of doctors has more than 40 years’ experience caring for specific bone issues in children, including:

  • Broken bones and trauma
  • Neurological conditions that may cause bone problems, such as cerebral palsy or Down syndrome
  • Congenital issues, including hip dysplasia, club feet and knock knees
  • Developmental issues, including growth disturbances such as limb length inequality
  • Bone cancer and cancer-related bone problems

Why Choose a Children’s Hospital?

Because caring for kids is all we do. From our casting technicians to our waiting rooms, everything is designed with your child in mind. Our goal is to make your child’s experience comfortable, happy—even fun.

And because we are part of the Children’s Hospital of Georgia (the region’s only children’s hospital), not only can you rely on our team of pediatric orthopedists, but also every pediatric specialty and subspecialty, all available right here in one location.
