More broken bones are mended at Children’s Health℠ than at any other medical center in North Texas. But our care goes beyond healing fractures. We treat kids with everything from routine injuries to rare musculoskeletal infections.

We treat developmental issues, such as hip dysplasia and dislocation, Legg-Calve-Perthes Disease, and other orthopedic conditions. We specialize in surgical reconstruction and cast management in case of trauma to the hands and arms, as well as congenital deformities, cysts, masses and nerve issues. Our physicians work closely with therapists and casting and splint experts.
