Pediatric Orthopaedic Surgery

At CAO, we recognize that children require extra special care. Our Pediatric Orthopedic Surgeons have expertise in treating all pediatric orthopedic problems, including acute trauma and sports injuries as well as developmental and chronic problems of the bones and joints of infants, children and adolescents. We recognize that appropriate treatment of fractures, sprains and dislocations in children is important to ensure minimal disturbance of function and a quick return to normal childhood growth and activity.

  • Osgood-Schlatter Disease

    This overuse injury is an inflammation that occurs at the point where the patellar tendon attaches to the tibia. It most commonly affects adolescents. One or both knees may be affected.
  • Osteochondritis Dissecans of the Elbow

    Osteochondritis dissecans of the elbow typically affects young athletes, especially those involved in throwing sports or gymnastics. It occurs when a portion of bone or its overlying articular cartilage is cut off from the blood supply, creating a "dead" area of bone and cartilage. It commonly affects the capitellum, where the humerus meets the radius.
