If you would like to have your child seen by one of our specialists in the Division of Orthopedic Surgery, please call 215-590-1527.
If you need help in determining the most appropriate physician to first evaluate the child, our staff will discuss the case with orthopedic team members and will contact you directly to set up an appointment.
You will be given information about anything special you need to do before the appointment, such as picking up X-rays from your child's primary physician.
Depending on your insurance coverage, you may need to first get a referral from your child's primary physician. This referral should be taken with you to the appointment with our orthopedic team member.
The Orthopedic division offices are located on the second floor of The Richard D. Wood Pediatric Ambulatory Care Center, adjacent to The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia's Main Building. Discounted parking is available in the garage beneath the Wood Center.
