What does pediatric orthopedics do?

Pediatric orthopedics is a specialized field of medicine focusing on the diagnosis, treatment and management of musculoskeletal problems in children. These conditions may include birth defects, growth disorders, and injuries sustained while playing or playing sports. The goal of pediatric orthopedics is to provide children with an active, pain-free life.

The most common diseases treated by pediatric orthopedists

Congenital defects: These are conditions with which a child is born. The most common congenital defects include clubfoot, hip dysplasia and differences in limb length. Early diagnosis and treatment are crucial for proper growth and development.

Growth plate injuries: Growth plates are areas of developing cartilage near the ends of long bones in children. Injuries to these areas can affect bone growth and development, leading to potential long-term problems if not managed properly.

Scoliosis: This is a condition characterized by an abnormal curvature of the spine. Early detection and treatment are essential to prevent progression and effectively manage symptoms.

Sports injuries: Active children often participate in sports activities, which puts them at risk for a variety of injuries such as fractures, sprains, and strains. Pediatric orthopedists specialize in the treatment of these injuries, including the impact on the child’s growth.

Gait disorders: Conditions such as toe walking, pigeon foot and flat feet can affect a child’s gait. Pediatric orthopedists evaluate and treat these conditions to ensure proper walking and running mechanisms.

Bone and joint infections: Infections such as inflammation of the bones (osteomyelitis) and arthritis (septic arthritis) require prompt and specialized care to prevent long-term damage to the bones and joints.

Symptoms indicating the need to visit a pediatric orthopedist

Parents should be alert for certain symptoms that may indicate the need for orthopedic consultation. Belong to them:

  • Persistent pain in the limbs, joints or back
  • Visible deformations or asymmetries
  • Difficulty walking or running
  • Unexplained limp
  • Limited range of motion in the joints
  • Chronic fatigue or weakness in the limbs

Diagnostic approaches

To accurately identify orthopedic problems in children, diagnostics should be performed:

  • Physical Examination: A thorough physical examination helps assess the affected area, understand symptoms, and plan further diagnostic steps.
  • Imaging tests: X-rays, MRIs and CT scans provide detailed images of bones, joints and soft tissues, helping to diagnose fractures, dislocations and other abnormalities. (ultrasound available on site)
  • Gait analysis: This involves observing a child’s walking andrunning patterns to identify any abnormalities and plan appropriate treatment.

Treatment of orthopedic conditions in children varies depending on the specific problem and its severity. The most common treatments include:

  • Non-surgical treatment: May include physical therapy, orthotics, casting, and pain and anti-inflammatory medications.
  • Surgical Interventions: In some cases, surgery is necessary to correct deformities, repair injuries, or address serious medical conditions. The pediatric orthopedists at Mediss Medical are skilled in performing surgeries tailored to the needs of growing children.
  • Rehabilitation: Once treatment is complete, rehabilitation is key to returning to full fitness. Our team provides comprehensive rehabilitation services, supporting children in the recovery process.

Preventive measures

Prevention is a key aspect of orthopedic care for children. Educating parents and children about injury prevention and proper body mechanics can help reduce the risk of orthopedic problems. Some preventive measures include:

  • Encouraging safe play and sports practice
  • Ensuring that children use appropriate protective equipment during activities
  • Promoting a healthy diet and regular exercise to support musculoskeletal health
  • Regular check-ups to monitor growth and development
