Pediatric Orthopedic Surgeon in Kothrud, Pune
PEDIATRIC ORTHOPEDIC CONDITIONS
In addition to treating general orthopedic conditions, we are dedicated to diagnosing and treating a wide variety of orthopedic injuries and conditions in children.
We take care of the entire spectrum of pediatric orthopedic problems from infancy to teenage years, including congenital disorders, problems that arise later in childhood such as scoliosis or growth abnormalities, and common injuries that can happen anywhere from the playground to the soccer field.
How is treating children different from adults?
- Children’s bones have growth plates that are responsible for the development and growth of bones. If these growth plates are injured, the injured limb may be underdeveloped, shorter/ smaller, or even deformed.
- Children’s bones are very elastic, they can be bent without being broken (plastic deformation) or bent and broken at the same time (green-stick fracture).
- Children’s bones are not fully calcified yet, and cannot be fully seen on X-rays machines until about 12 years old. Therefore, diagnosing a fracture relies mainly on the experience of orthopedic surgeons and advanced imaging techniques.
- Children’s bones are much smaller, hence, conventional plates/ screws/ nails for adults are too big for them. Specialized pediatric implants such as Titanium Elastic Nails (TENs) are required.
