About Pediatric Orthopedics

As they grow, children’s bodies undergo dramatic changes. Their bones, muscles, ligaments, nerves and other elements that make up the musculoskeletal system develop and change throughout infancy and into adolescence and young adulthood.

Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida offers specialized care in pediatric orthopedics, which involves the management and treatment of musculoskeletal conditions that only affect children – from birth through adolescence.


Committed, Family-Centered Care

The pediatric physicians and staff at Golisano Children’s Hospital have a wide range of experience and provide comprehensive pediatric orthopedic services for our young patients.


Our areas of specialization include:

  • Pediatric and Adolescent Spine Abnormalities
  • Limb Deformity and Limb Length Problems
  • Congenital and Acquired Hand and Foot Disorders
  • Pediatric and Adolescent Hip Disorders
  • Complex Post-Traumatic Fraction Problems
  • Pediatric and Adolescent Sports Medicine
  • Musculoskeletal Infections and Tumors

As part of our ongoing commitment to the families in Southwest Florida, our staff strongly believes in involving the family during the diagnosis and treatment process. Additionally, we strive to treat children who face orthopedic challenges with compassion and care.

Our team of pediatric specialists includes board certified orthopedic pediatricians, pediatric nurses who specialize in orthopedics, orthopedic technicians, occupational and physical therapists, and other specialists.

This committed team provides expert care from infancy and into adolescence. As children explore their world, it is not unusual to experience broken bones and other trauma to the musculoskeletal system. In many cases, it’s just a part of growing up. And as kids become involved in sports and other activities, the possibilities of sports-related injuries increase.

That’s why families have come to rely on the special orthopedic care available at Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida. We offer a full range of diagnostic expertise and treatments, including physical therapy and rehabilitation services.
