Pediatric Orthopaedic Clinic
The pediatric orthopaedic specialists of the Stanford University Orthopaedic Program are nationally and internationally renowned for treating congenital, developmental, and traumatic deformities of the spine and extremities in children and young adults. Our clinics are located at the Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital, which is rated among the top 10 pediatric surgical hospitals in the United States. Our pediatric orthopaedic surgeons are widely recognized both regionally and nationally for innovative surgical treatments, as well as conservative approaches to a wide variety of orthopaedic problems. Among the most-common conditions we treat are:
- Spinal deformities such as scoliosis, kyphosis, spondylolisthesis, and spinal trauma
- Pediatric and adolescent sports injuries
- Foot and hip development problems such as club foot and hip dysplasia
- Lower extremity deformities such as knock knees, bowleggedness, and rotational problems
- Upper extremity deformities, whether congenital or developmental
- Leg length discrepancy
- Benign and malignant tumors
- Fractures and other trauma to the extremities and spine
- Cerebral palsy
- Limb salvage
- Radiofrequency ablation of osteoid osteomas
Our pediatric orthopaedic service receives patient inquiries and consultation requests from around the world. Besides our busy operative practice, we are known for recommending non-operative methods or small incision techniques when possible to manage complex pediatric orthopaedic problems.
