Staying active is an important part of childhood. Growing bodies need professional, prompt attention to protect a lifetime of healthy activity. The pediatric orthopedics team at Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital treats a wide range of conditions affecting the bones, joints and muscles of infants, children and teens. Because their skeletons are still growing, orthopedic issues in children can be quite different than in adults.
Our team includes some of the most talented pediatric orthopedic specialists in the country. This team includes board-certified, fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeons, physician assistants, nurses, radiology technicians and cast technicians who specialize in treating infants through teenagers. From small fractures to complex spine problems, our goal is to work with you to find the right treatment plan for your child while providing your child with the best possible experience.
