Baxter County Pediatric orthopedics
Bone Health for Children & Young Adults
A child’s body goes through rampant, extreme changes in a very small
amount of time. Our anatomy is built for this rapid change, and most children
do not experience any sort of joint or bone pains outside of injury. There
are rare occasions, however, when a condition interferes with the child’s
ability to grow, and this is when it’s time to see a pediatric orthopedist.
These injuries and conditions could permanently affect the child’s
ability to grow and develop, making it imperative that you see proper
medical attention right away so that your loved one can receive the treatment
We employ a team of medical professionals who are well versed in treating
a variety of conditions affecting children, including:
- Cerebral Palsy
- Club foot
- Muscular Dystrophy
- Perthes' Disease
- Skeletal Dysplasia
- Spina Bifida
- Overuse injuries
At the Baxter Regional Medical Center, our orthopedic staff understands
that a child's musculoskeletal system is different than an adult's,
requiring a specialized type of care.
We treat all children as if they were our own, recognizing that children's
bodies and minds are special and must be cared for accordingly. That's
why at Baxter Regional we have medical professionals who are trained to
treat children's pediatric musculoskeletal injuries.
Our staff combines the use of compassionate care with leading-edge technological
advancements to develop a plan of care that is personalized to fit the
needs of each child we care for. Baxter Regional's orthopedic surgeons,
physicians, occupational and physical therapists, and other staff members
work tirelessly to achieve the ultimate goal of helping each child reach
maximum function as quickly and safely as possible.
