If your child has a broken bone or pain related to sports injuries, we invite you to visit one of our Fracture Care Clinics conveniently located in Arlington, Dallas, Frisco or McKinney where we provide you and your child with the highest quality of care and little to no wait time.
Our board-certified pediatric physicians have successfully performed more than 5,900 surgeries. Our recovery rates are proven to be fast due to pre-operative protocols such as stretching, hydrating and getting plenty of sleep before surgery.
At Medical City Children’s Orthopedic and Spine Specialists, our pediatric orthopedic physicians specialize in treating children in all areas of orthopedics. Our Fracture Care Clinics provide compassionate resources to assure that you and your child receive all the care and attention you need during the uncertainty of the severity of an injury or broken bone.
Orthopedics is the medical specialty that focuses on injuries and diseases of your body’s musculoskeletal system, and pediatric orthopedists care for children of all ages, from newborns with clubfeet to young athletes requiring the proper resetting of broken limbs. This complex system, which includes your bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles, and nerves, allows your child to be active.
Our pediatric orthopedic physicians at Medical City Children’s Orthopedic and Spine Specialists treat conditions of the musculoskeletal system. This involves:
Our pediatric physicians 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:
After establishing a licensed practice, our orthopedic physicians have demonstrated mastery of orthopedic knowledge by passing certifying examinations given by the American Board of Orthopedic Surgery. They continue in a career-long Maintenance of Certification process and have been in practice for more than ten years.
In addition, our orthopedic surgeons spend many hours researching new techniques and technologies that will advance treatment. We are active members in the Pediatric Orthopedic Society of North America and Scoliosis Research Society, where we contribute through writing white papers for distributing knowledge about advancements in orthopedic care.
The difference in our Fracture Care Clinics is how quickly we can see the patients and how personal the interaction is with physicians.
“We spend a lot of time going over the psychological aspects of what a family can expect. We have personal interaction with the patient and the patient’s family to affirm that every member of the family is comfortable with the treatment.” Shyam Kishan, MD
At Medical City Children’s Orthopedic and Spine Specialists, one of our pediatric orthopedic physicians 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. This may be followed by diagnostic studies such as a blood test or an X-ray exam. They will then discuss your diagnosis and help you select the best treatment plan so that your child can live an active and happy life.

If necessary, your orthopedic physician may recommend surgery if your child does not respond to nonsurgical treatments.
