Pediatric orthopedics

The child in focus

Pediatric orthopaedics is important because it deals specifically with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of bone, joint and muscle disorders in children and adolescents. Children are still growing, so orthopaedic problems in them often require a different approach than in adults. Early detection and treatment can prevent long-term health problems and ensure optimal physical development.
