Children’s Orthopaedic Surgery

Children’s Orthopaedics deals with the evaluation and management of musculoskeletal problems involving the growing bones, joints, and muscles in children (newborns to teenagers). Children’s orthopaedic surgeons focus their medical practice on the care of children and are trained in special skills in children’s orthopaedics as an additional subspecialty.

Musculoskeletal problems in children differ from those of an adult as they are still in various stages of growth. The evaluation and treatment of children are also different from that of an adult. Some musculoskeletal problems in children are due to abnormal growth not found in adult cases. Complex musculoskeletal problems in children are best treated by a medical-surgical approach from a children’s orthopaedic surgeon.

Surgery may be necessary in some children with conditions such as growth plate fractures, sports injuries, musculoskeletal tumors, limb length discrepancies, knock knees, and bow knees. Surgery may be the quickest option in relieving pain and restoring function in many children with severe orthopaedic deformities and bone damage. Whatever your child’s condition whether it is congenital, degenerative, or traumatic; Dr. Harish Hosalkar can offer comprehensive care in all aspects of children’s orthopaedic surgery.

Dr. Hosalkar’s benevolent nature and sensitive approach is truly appreciated by his patients. He will educate both you and your child on your child’s condition and available treatment options in the best possible way, and his child-friendly manner can help your child be diagnosed and treated in a comfortable and nonthreatening environment.
