Oooooh Baby – Pediatric Orthopedic Care

Did you know that Sarasota Orthopedic Associates provides orthopedic care for children as well as adults?

A pediatric orthopedic physician is specially trained in treating children from newborns to teens. Children are not just small adults. Many times, they are unable to communicate their discomfort or comply during an exam. Pediatric orthopedic physicians are experts in approaching children effectively to provide the best treatment in a friendly setting.

Typical pediatric orthopedic treatments may include those of child spinal deformity, limping/gait, broken bones, and joint infections or tumors. Children are still in a rapid growth phase and respond differently to treatment than adults. The good news is the bones of children heal faster than an adult.

At Sarasota Orthopedic Associates we see many child/teen sports injuries involving the elbow, shoulder, ankle, and knee from activities like baseball, football, and gymnastics. These injuries may be either traumatic events like a fracture, or, a minor injury like a sprain from overuse; both injuries benefit from the skill and expertise of a pediatric orthopedic physician.

Our children are our greatest natural resource and the pediatric orthopedic physicians at Sarasota Orthopedic Associates are trained to help keep your children healthy, strong, and thriving. Check HERE for more.
