Pediatric Sports Medicine/Traumatic Injuries
From tee-ball to high school all-stars, young athletes can injure themselves doing the sports they enjoy. Our doctors provide surgical and nonsurgical care for all types of sports injuries, including sprains, dislocations, and fractures. We also specialize in overuse injuries, such as Gymnast’s wrist, Little League elbow, elbow ulnar collateral ligament injury (“Tommy John”), and osteochondritis dissecans (OCD) of the elbow.
Children of all ages can also sustain simple to complex traumatic injuries, including fractures (broken bones), dislocations, deep lacerations, burns, and tendon and nerve injuries. Our doctors care for any of these injuries that affect the hand, wrist, forearm, and elbow.
There are also times when injuries do not heal well or problems arise, such as physeal arrest (growth plate stops growing), fracture nonunion (broken bone does not heal), fracture malunion (broken bone heals crooked), and heterotopic ossification/contractures (joint stiffness). Our doctors provide expertise in managing these complex situations. If reconstructive surgery or revision surgery is necessary, let our team guide you through this process.
