Children require care that not only meets their immediate needs but also safeguards their long-term health and wellbeing. As the child develops physically, mentally, and emotionally, adequate care is necessary.
Children with congenital, developmental, and acquired musculoskeletal disorders, among other health conditions, need specialized attention, too. A specialized medical field that attends to the child’s orthopedic needs is pediatric orthopedics.
To define the two terms in pediatric orthopedics separately, pediatrics is the branch of medicine dealing with children and their disorders; whereas, orthopedics is derived from Nicholas Andry’s definition of the medical specialty that is concerned with the prevention and treatment of musculoskeletal problems.

A: You can share your concerns with the paediatric orthopaedic specialist and understand whether a surgery is necessary or not. The specialist will always consider non-surgical options first. However, open and compound fractures, displaced growth-plate fractures, as well as those that involve joint surface, typically heal better with surgery.
A: Don’t worry yourself about this condition. An extra little finger often doesn’t affect how she uses her hand, and some people live with it. You may feel that it should be removed for cosmetic reasons. If the extra finger does not contain any bones, the removal is quite simple. The paediatric orthopaedic doctor at Medcare will advise you on the correct course of action.
A: Leg length discrepancy (LLD) in a child is treated by considering the child’s final height and leg lengths. If the LLD is estimated to become over 2 cm, only then is treatment required. In some cases, an orthopaedic shoe is helpful in correcting the condition. Only in a few cases is surgery recommended for either the shorter or longer leg.
A: Growth plates are thin cartilage plates at the end of children’s long bones. A growth plate fracture can affect the way the bone will grow. If not treated correctly, growth plate fracture could lead to a deformity. So do take the advice of the paediatric orthopaedic specialist at Medcare very seriously.
