Orthopedics - Dallas
Many broken bones are mended at Children’s Health℠, but our care goes beyond healing fractures. Our Dallas location treats kids with everything from routine injuries to rare musculoskeletal infections.
We also 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.
