At Medical City Children’s Orthopedic and Spine Specialists, one of our doctors will see you right away. Since we are affiliated with Medical City Hospital, we have access to surgery rooms every morning, so you never have to wait to schedule surgery. When you and your child arrive at our Fracture Care Clinics, we will take a history of your child’s illness or injury and then do a physical examination. Meanwhile, this may be followed by diagnostic studies such as a blood test or an X-ray exam. Then they will discuss your child’s diagnosis and help you select the best treatment plan for full recovery.
To repeat, our pediatric orthopedic doctors treat many musculoskeletal conditions without surgery. For instance, they use medications, exercises, and other rehabilitative or alternative therapies. For most orthopedic conditions and injuries there is more than one form of conservative treatment. If necessary, your doctor may recommend surgery, if your child does not respond to nonsurgical treatments.
