If your child has an orthopedic problem, you want him or her to receive the very best, most advanced care possible. Additionally, you’ll want a team of experts who are compassionate and view each one of their young patients as unique and special, and who understand and are responsive to the concerns of parents.
ColumbiaDoctors pediatric orthopedists at NewYork-Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital provide that kind of team. In fact, according to U.S. News & World Report, our service ranks among the best of its kind in the country because we address children’s unique needs, advance pediatric treatment options worldwide through our extensive research, and focus on quality of care concerns for the whole family.
Our team’s mission is to get each and every one of our patients back to their very important job — being children.
Our pediatric orthopedic surgeons are renowned for their specialized expertise in a broad spectrum of congenital, developmental, and traumatic disorders affecting bones, soft tissues, joints and the neuromuscular system in babies, children, and adolescents. These physicians are highly skilled in providing young patients with state-of-the-art surgical and non-surgical treatments — whether the problem involves a club foot, cerebral palsy, a curve in the spine, leg length differences, orthopedic tumors, or a sports injury.
They understand the unique issues involved in caring for children and their specific developmental needs. Our dedicated team of surgeons and nurses take a holistic view of each child and his or her musculoskeletal system when planning treatment. They also recognize that family involvement plays a significant role in a child’s progress and consider family members a very vital part of the treatment.
A full range of associated resources, including physical therapy, pediatric rehabilitation medicine, and orthotic and prosthetic services, complement the care we provide our patients.
