"Pediatric orthopedics " simply refers to the medical care of children’s bones. When it comes to youth, extra care is required to lower the risk of damage to bones that are still developing. Treatment by a board-certified or highly experienced pediatric orthopedic doctor can help prevent long-term complications that may otherwise affect a child's gait and growth.
