Choosing the Right Pediatric Orthopedist

Orthopedic medicine is a specialty that focuses on the musculoskeletal system, mainly on the bones, joints, and limbs. Orthopedic doctors can treat a multitude of things, but a majority of problems that are treated involve those with joint infections, injuries, spine or limb deformities, and broken bones. A division of orthopedic medicine focuses on growing children, called pediatric orthopedics.
