Complex Orthopedic Rehabilitation

Pediatric orthopedic care is a specialized field of medicine devoted to children who have suffered trauma to joints, muscles and bones. Because children’s bodies are still growing, they have a distinctly different joint, muscle, and bone structure than adults. In addition, orthopedic rehabilitation is key to regaining strength and mobility for patients who have undergone surgery or suffered a traumatic brain injury, musculoskeletal disorder or other injury.

Our team of therapists uses state-of-the-art techniques and specialized equipment to improve functional mobility and minimize chronic pain in the muscles and joints.

Service Lines

  • Multiple Trauma or Fractures. Complex pediatric orthopedics is a highly-specialized field of rehabilitation medicine that treats children who have suffered from complex orthopedic injuries such as multiple traumas or fractures (car accidents, falls, sports injuries), requiring specialized treatment to restore functionality.
  • Amputation. In rare cases requiring limb amputation, specialized care is essential to prevent infection and introduce the patient to a prosthetic limb. Our interdisciplinary team includes physical therapists, prosthetists, occupational therapist to provide training in activities of daily living, and psychotherapists to help children emotionally manage the physical loss and lifestyle changes.
  • External fixators. Eternal fixators are stabilizing frames or — often a combination of pins, plates and/or a frame to help stabilize fractured bones and keep them in alignment.
