Child with a pediatric sports injury.

CityMD cares: nurturing growing bones with pediatric orthopedics.

As parents, we all want the best for our children, especially regarding their health. When it comes to the bones and joints that support their active, growing bodies, pediatric orthopedics is a crucial field of medicine.

At CityMD, we're dedicated to providing top-notch care, ensuring your little ones stay healthy and robust as they grow.

What is pediatric orthopedics?

Pediatric orthopedics is a branch of medicine that deals with the bones, joints and muscles of children and teenagers.

Kids are not just small adults – their bodies are growing and changing, which means they need specialized care when it comes to bone and joint issues.

From treating simple breaks after a tumble in the playground to managing more complex conditions present from birth, pediatric orthopedists are the experts in keeping young bones healthy.


Common orthopedic injuries in children.

Children are naturally active and adventurous, which sometimes leads to injuries.

Some common issues seen in pediatric orthopedics include:

  • Fractures (broken bones). These are common in kids, given their active lifestyles.
  • Sprains and strains. Often happening during sports or play, these involve stretching or tearing of ligaments and muscles.
  • Sports injuries. Kids involved in sports might face specific injuries related to their activities.
  • Growth plate injuries. These occur in the areas of growing tissue near the ends of a child's long bones and need careful attention.

Treating these conditions promptly is essential to ensure your child heals correctly and can continue to run, play and grow without any setbacks.
