Fracture Care

Fracture Care

The Children’s Health Andrews Institute provides pediatric-focused nonsurgical and surgical care for the full range of arm and leg fractures.

Depending on the type and location of a fracture (a cracked or broken bone), your doctor may recommend either non-operative treatments (such as a cast) or surgery. Thankfully, most fractures in children and teenagers are treated effectively without surgery. Our experts, trained in the intricacies of growing bones, use research-based techniques to best care for your child’s injury.

Offering a wide range of non-surgical treatments

Often, we can treat fractures effectively without surgery. We offer:

  • Waterproof casting: We’re one of the only area providers to offer a waterproof casting option, which allows children to completely soak the cast or even swim with it.
  • Braces and orthotics: We also offer other nonsurgical treatments, including braces and different orthotics that effectively treat certain fractures.
  • On-site cast room for fracture manipulations: With our own “cast room” in the clinic, our specialists can gently manipulate select fractures while applying the cast.

Safe and effective surgery available when needed

After a child sustains a fracture, our orthopedic physicians consider multiple factors when deciding whether or not to perform surgery. If we determine that surgery is necessary, our team uses the most advanced methods to safely and effectively treat fractures. Learn more about our Pediatric Orthopedic Surgery program.
