Orthopedic Surgery

The Division of Pediatric Orthopedic Surgery is renowned for outstanding programs for children with scoliosis, hip dysplasia, neuromuscular diseases, limb anomalies, clubfeet and trauma. State-of-the-art resources, such as the computerized gait analysis laboratory, serve as models regionally and nationally. There are orthopedic residents continually on the pediatric orthopedic service and there is a pediatric orthopedic fellowship as part of the program.

Pediatric residents interact with the pediatric orthopedic program faculty and trainees on inpatient and outpatient rotations. The pediatric orthopedic faculty are recognized for their teaching of pediatric residents, and they offer both block and longitudinal electives. Residents are invited to participate in their scholarly endeavors as well.
