Sometimes, receiving help from an orthopedic specialist can help an infant, child, or adolescent in promoting healthy growth, maintaining a healthy musculoskeletal system, or recovering from a musculoskeletal injury or condition.
The pediatric orthopedic specialists at the Intermountain Healthcare Orthopedic Specialty Group take special care when diagnosing and treating children with various musculoskeletal conditions. As a team, our orthopedic specialists, physical therapists, orthopedic surgeons, nurses, and other staff work to make a child’s visit as comfortable and helpful as possible.
We understand that parents want to be involved in their children's care every step of the way. That’s why we emphasize child-to-parent and specialist-to-parent communication. Keeping children healthy is a team effort. We make sure to involve parents so they are educated about the situation and know the individual needs of their child.
We have several orthopedic specialists who focus on pediatric care and can treat a wide variety of musculoskeletal problems in children of any age, including:
- Cerebral palsy
- Spina bifida
- Foot and hip deformities
- Traumatic injuries
- Spinal deformity
- Leg-length and position abnormalities
Regardless of the condition, we use the most advanced technology and industry recognized best practices to evaluate the problem and develop individualized treatment plans for each patient. Our orthopedic surgeons can also handle emergency situations in which a child's musculoskeletal system has been traumatically injured.
Whether your child needs a one-time treatment, or is going to need several follow-up visits to keep a condition in check, we always make sure to provide friendly, understanding care. We want your child to feel safe, welcome, and at ease when visiting our orthopedic specialists.
If your child is experiencing a musculoskeletal abnormality or injury, don’t hesitate to ask one of our orthopedic specialists for an appointment. Receiving treatment as soon as possible may prevent a problem from getting worse.
