From birth through early adulthood, bones, joints and muscles (the musculoskeletal system) go through many changes. Because growth and development is happening at such a fast pace, injuries, diseases and conditions affecting a young person’s musculoskeletal system can be challenging to treat.
Children aren’t just small adults: They require a different kind of care.
The team at the top-ranked Herbert J. Louis Center for Pediatric Orthopedics at Phoenix Children’s is expertly trained to care for children and teens who experience musculoskeletal injuries or diseases and conditions impacting musculoskeletal function.
