MCKINNEY PEDIATRIC ORTHOPEDICS
The McKinney Pediatric Orthopedics office focuses on the treatment of musculoskeletal injuries and the correction of deformities of the bones. When children with joint dislocations, fractures, soft tissue injuries, infectious conditions, and rheumatologic diseases come to our clinic, they are seen by our pediatric orthopedic physician specialists.
Living with a painful ache or injury is difficult and often unnecessary. In other words, it is important that parents seek the attention of an expert trained Pediatric Orthopedic Physician if their child has experienced some sort of trauma to the bone, joint, tendon, or nerve, or if they are experiencing chronic joint or bone pain. Therefore, with the help of our Fellowship-trained Pediatric Orthopedic physicians, patients can improve their mobility and quality of life

Focusing On Pediatric Orthopedics For Residents of McKinney TX
At Medical City Children’s Orthopedic and Spine Specialists, our doctors specialize in treating children. Furthermore, our Fracture Care Clinics provide compassionate resources to assure that you and your child receive the best care available.
Orthopedics is the medical specialty that focuses on injuries and diseases of your body’s musculoskeletal system. Thus, our doctors specialize in the care of children of all ages. And their patients are from newborns with clubfeet to young athletes requiring the proper resetting of broken limbs. However, our practice includes bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles, and nerves, allows your child to be active.
Firstly, our doctors treat conditions of the musculoskeletal system that involve:
- Diagnosis of the injury or disorder
- Treatment with medication, exercise, casting, or surgery
- Rehabilitation by recommending exercises or physical therapy to restore movement, strength and function
- Prevention of injuries related to sports to manage the disease
Orthopedics Education and Training For Residents of McKinney TX
To sum up, our doctors have extensive training in the proper diagnosis and treatment of injuries and conditions of the musculoskeletal system. They have completed up to 14 years of formal education, including:
- Four years of study in a college or university
- Four years of study in medical school
- Five years of training in an orthopedic residency at a major medical center

After establishing a licensed practice, our orthopedic doctors have demonstrated mastery of knowledge by passing certifying examinations given by the American Board of Orthopedic Surgery. Subsequently, they continue in a career-long certification process and have been in practice for more than ten years.
In addition, our surgeons spend many hours researching new techniques and technologies that will advance treatment. Also, we are active members of the Pediatric Orthopedic Society of North America and Scoliosis Research Society, where we contribute through writing white papers for distributing knowledge about advancements in care.
The difference in our Fracture Care Clinics is how quickly we can see our patients. Appointments for fracture care are not necessary. There is personal interaction between the patients and our Doctors.
“We spend a lot of time going over the physical aspects of what a family can expect. We work with the patient and their families to ensure that every member of the family is comfortable with the treatment plan.” Shyam Kishan, MD
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.
- Fusion—a “welding” process by which bones are fused together with bone grafts and internal devices (such as metal rods) to heal into a single solid bone.
- Internal fixation—a method to hold the broken pieces of bone in proper position with metal plates, pins, or screws while the bone is healing.
- Joint replacement (partial, total, and revision)—when an arthritic or damaged joint is removed and replaced with an artificial joint called a prosthesis.
- Osteotomy—the correction of bone deformity by cutting and repositioning the bone.
- Soft tissue repair—the mending of soft tissue, such as torn tendons or ligaments.
Above all, our doctors have experience and expertise in pediatric orthopedic injuries and conditions.
Our board-certified doctors specialize in the treatment of children and adolescents.
Your doctor will give your child the care and attention they deserve.
