Pediatric Orthopedics

Musculoskeletal conditions and injuries in infants, children, and adolescents can have long-lasting consequences on their ability to function and their overall quality of life. The pediatric orthopedic specialists of NewYork-Presbyterian Lawrence Hospital have exceptional experience treating all types of orthopedic conditions in children of all ages, from birth defects and other congenital disorders, to trauma, sports injuries, spine deformities, and neuromuscular disorders.

Comprehensive and Compassionate Care:  We provide surgical and nonsurgical treatment for orthopedic conditions such as scoliosis, clubfoot, leg length differences, hip dysplasia, tibial pseudoarthrosis, fractures, sports injuries, cerebral palsy, and neuromuscular disorders. We understand your child's individual developmental needs and take a holistic approach when planning his or her care.

Emergency Care for Traumatic Injuries: Broken bones and traumatic musculoskeletal injuries are scary at any age, but are especially concerning for children and adolescents. Our team of pediatric specialists has specialized training in the management and care for fractures and traumatic injuries to the growing bones, joints, and ligaments of children and adolescents.

Care for Young Athletes: Our team of pediatric orthopedic specialists has specialized training and extensive experience managing sports injuries in young athletes. In addition to helping our patients get back to their sport as quickly and safely as possible – whether surgery or non-operative care is required – our team is passionate about injury prevention and teaching children, parents, and coaches how to avoid sports injuries and keep young athletes out of the doctor’s office and on the field.
