Pediatric fractures and trauma
Bone fractures and orthopaedic trauma in children is all too common. Whether the cause is a sports related injury, an accident at home, or a car wreck, these injuries need special attention and rehabilitation in pediatric cases. Varying healing times and growth plate damage can cause long-term issues if they are not properly addressed.
Tenet Florida Physician Services offers evaluation and treatment of all musculoskeletal injuries of the limb and spine in children. Specialized diagnostics and imaging may be needed in addition to pediatric casting, bracing and prosthetics.
In many cases, families find our offices after the initial trauma is treated at an emergency room or outpatient center. Tenet doctors can provide a more thorough orthopedic assessment and provide a customized recovery and rehabilitation program.Previous Page Last Review Date: January 5, 2018
