Pediatric Orthopedic Care in Detroit and Southeastern Michigan
DMC Medical Group provides comprehensive pediatric orthopedic care in Detroit and southeastern Michigan, helping kids to live a more active, fun-filled life! We understand that your family needs a pediatric orthopedic specialist that you can have confidence in when it comes to treating your child’s condition, and we will provide compassionate care and thorough communication for every step of your child's treatment process.
Children’s bodies are still growing and changing, so treating conditions or injuries related to their bones, joints, muscles, tendons, or ligaments requires knowledgeable, skilled care. Our specialists can provide treatment of traumatic, reconstructive, degenerative, and congenital pediatric orthopedic conditions, along with treatments for deformities of the lower extremities. We will work to treat your child using advanced, effective treatment methods so that they can get back to just being a kid.
Traumatic Pediatric Orthopedic Care
If your child has gone through a serious accident or injury, you will want the best care to help relieve their pain and get them back to normal as quickly as possible. We provide treatment for orthopedic trauma, including broken bones, limb deformities and wounds caused by accidents, and injuries to multiple parts of the body.
It is important to see a pediatric orthopedic specialist if your child breaks a bone, because children have areas of cartilage in their bones called growth plates that continue to expand into adulthood. If these areas do not heal correctly, your child can experience long-term health problems.
Reconstructive Pediatric Orthopedics
Sometimes a child’s orthopedic injury or condition will require reconstruction of the injured area. Our pediatric orthopedic specialists will provide reconstructive surgery, which in many cases can be minimally invasive, reducing post-surgical pain and recovery time for your child.
Treatment of Degenerative Pediatric Orthopedic Conditions
Our knowledgeable pediatric orthopedic specialists provide treatment of degenerative conditions to help manage symptoms. While there is no cure for these conditions, our specialists can provide treatment to help maintain muscle strength and sometimes delay progression of the disease, helping patients have the best possible quality of life. This includes treatment for muscular dystrophy and spinal muscular atrophy.
Treatment of Congenital Pediatric Orthopedic Conditions
Congenital orthopedic conditions, also sometimes referred to as “defects,” are orthopedic anomalies that are present at birth. Clubfoot, developmental dysplasia of the hip, extra fingers or toes, and metatarsus adductus are some of the congenital orthopedic conditions that a child may be born with. With treatment that may include surgical intervention, our pediatric orthopedic specialists can minimize or even entirely correct these conditions, giving your child the most normal, active life possible.
Treatment for Deformities of the Lower Extremities
Deformities of the lower extremities can be congenital, idiopathic, or caused by trauma or infection. These conditions include clubfoot, rotational problems such as intoeing and out-toeing, bowleg, knock knees, flat foot, and leg length discrepancies. Children may present with these conditions at birth, or develop them as their bodies grow.
Because children’s bodies are not the same as adults due to their growing and developing bodies, it is important to seek treatment for lower extremity deformities from an orthopedic specialist who is knowledgeable about pediatric bodies. If your child is diagnosed with a lower extremity deformity, our compassionate and skilled specialists will provide them with a comprehensive examination and diagnosis, and work with you to develop a plan for treatment. This may include correctional devices such as braces or footwear, casting, physical therapy, or surgical correction.
We understand that you, as a parent, want the best care for your child, and the best chance for them to have a normal, active, and happy life. Our specialists can provide your child with treatment for a wide range of pediatric orthopedic conditions.
