It is important to choose Pediatric Orthopedic Doctors who Specialize in Children. 

“Orthopedic surgeons who only focus on adults may not factor in the need to pay close attention to growth plates. Growth plates are growing tissue on the ends of the long bones of children and adolescents. When treating a child’s injury, your pediatric orthopedic doctors will also evaluate your child’s growth plate to ensure the bone heals correctly.” says Dr. Shyam Kishan. “Growth plates are the weakest areas of a child’s growing skeleton. Because they are weak, it makes them extremely vulnerable to injuries and must be considered when diagnosing and recommending the right treatment.”

Your child deserves the best orthopedic care possible if they are in pain our experts can help!

A second opinion is recommended if your child has been diagnosed with scoliosis. With a second opinion, by one of our experts, you can be assured as to the type and progression of his or her’s unique condition. Based on these two factors our doctors can give you, the parent, research-based individualized treatment options, starting with conservative treatments. In most cases, it is important to establish a baseline diagnosis to refer to as your child’s bones grow and develop.

Scoliosis Quiz

“We want our parents to be informed and aware of the signs of scoliosis,” says Dr. Kathryn Wiesman. “Please take the Scoliosis Quiz to help determine if you need to speak with our pediatric scoliosis experts about your child.”

“Recovery was hard at first but everybody would kind of work with me and Dr. Hostin would visit me, so I felt OK. The pain was really only the first day after surgery. After that I felt fine.”
