Division of Orthopaedics
Kids are made to move. When injury or illness keeps a child from exploring their world, pediatric orthopaedic surgeons and doctors at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia are here to help. At Children's Hospital, broken bones are fixed so kids can get back on the playground. Ribcages are expanded so it's easier to breathe. Athletes are taught to train safely, reducing risk of injury. Limbs and joints are repaired so walking, running and throwing are possible. Our orthopaedic experts provide cutting-edge care so that your child can get back to being a kid.
After surgery is proposed for their child, many families want a second opinion. Our referral nurse navigator can give your family timely access to world-renowned pediatric orthopaedic surgeons in every specialty and help coordinate your visit to our Hospital.
