Medical City Children’s Orthopedic and Spine Specialists is known as North Texas’ premier practice for treating children with orthopedic and scoliosis conditions.
As a parent, you want the highest quality of care for your child.
Whether you suspect that your child may have a fractured bone from a sports injury or want to determine if your child may have scoliosis, you can have confidence in our board-certified, fellowship-trained pediatric orthopedic surgeons who have successfully performed more than 4,500 surgeries. Over the past 10 years, this practice has built a comprehensive pediatric orthopedic program to assure you, as a parent, have a trusted resource for all your child’s orthopedic needs.
When developing our pediatric orthopedic practice over 10 years ago, we understood that it needed to cater to those parents who have busy schedules to juggle. That’s why we have what we call Fracture Clinics every day at our three locations in Dallas, Frisco and McKinney. The Fracture Clinic allows you to bring in your child if you suspect a fracture with no appointment necessary and avoid long waits in the emergency room. Your child can be examined by one of our fracture experts and if it is determined that your child needs surgery, we have surgical access every morning from 7:30 – 9:30 at Medical City Dallas assuring that your child is on the road to recovery as quickly as possible.
“Orthopedic surgeons who only focus on adults may not factor in the need to pay close attention to growth plates when treating a child,” says Dr. Shyam Kishan. “Growth plates are the weakest areas of a child’s growing skeleton, which makes them extremely vulnerable to injuries and must be considered when diagnosing and recommending the right treatment”.
Knowing that in some cases, scoliosis is a genetic disease, Dr Shyam Kishan, Dr. Richard Hostin and Dr. Ioannis Avramis are leaders in scoliosis treatment for all ages from children through adults. This means that if your child has scoliosis early in life and it does progress over time, you will have consistent care as your child matures with the same leading orthopedic physicians. If your child has been diagnosed with scoliosis, we recommend that you let us give you a second opinion as to the type and any progression of the disease. In many cases, children can live a normal life and participate in all activities. There are cases where adjustments or even surgery is the best solution for the child to look forward to an active life in the future.
“We want our parents to be informed and aware of the signs of orthopedic issues”, says Dr. Richard Hostin. “Please take the Orthopedic Quiz to help determine if you need to speak with our pediatric orthopedic experts about your child”.
Our Pediatric Orthopedic practice is known for developing innovative treatment and providing world-class care. We see a wide variety of conditions that affect the growing muscles, joints and bones of children and teenagers. Our team, led by Dr. Kishan, Dr. Hostin, and Dr. Avramis studies and treats problems affecting the growing bones, joints and muscles of children. Click here to learn more about each service we offer.
