Children Pediatric Orthopedics
Pediatric Orthopedics is a sub-speciality of Orthopedics which deals with the management of bone and joint problems in children less than 16 years old. The need for this sub-speciality stems from the fact that children are not merely small adults. Children’s bones have structure and properties different from adult bones. Hence the treatment considerations for orthopedic disorders in children are different from that of adults. One major difference between bones in children and adults is that children’s bones are growing bones and hence while treating orthopedic conditions in children, great care has to be taken to preserve future growth.
Also, orthopedic diseases in children are completely different from orthopedic conditions in adults. Whereas adults commonly suffer from conditions like arthritis, osteoporosis, etc., these diseases almost never occur in children. On the other hand, conditions like birth defects, developmental disorders, deformities, etc. are commonly seen in children and need to be effectively managed at a very young age.
