Orthopaedics

A paediatric orthopaedic surgeon is a doctor who provides specialist care to bones and joints of the upper and lower limbs. They have specialist training in surgical and non-surgical management of birth conditions, disorders of gait, alignment, joint and bone pain, sports injuries and trauma involving the upper and lower limbs of children and adolescents.

Paediatric orthopaedic surgeons perform surgery on children and adolescents to alleviate pain, improve function and quality of life in relation to their upper and lower limbs.

Your child might see an orthopaedic surgeon for further assessment or treatment of:

  • sports injuries
  • broken bones (fractures)
  • bone or joint pain
  • abnormalities of the upper or lower limbs
  • difficulties with walking and gait
  • conditions such as cerebral palsy, Down’s syndrome, osteogenesis imperfecta, spina bifida, charcot marie tooth, multiple hereditary exostosis, neurofibromatosis, fibrous dysplasia and McCune Albright syndrome, rickets and chromosomal abnormalities
  • infections of bone or joint (osteomyelitis and septic arthritis)
  • foot and ankle problems such as club foot, tarsal coalition, pes planus (flat foot) and pes cavus (arched foot)
