Whether your child has a broken arm, sports-related injury or a complex spinal condition, you can count on receiving state-of-the-art care dispensed with compassion and kindness from the pediatric team at Tulane Lakeside Hospital for Women and Children.
Treating the Growing Bodies of Children and Adolescents
Our pediatric orthopedic specialists understand that treating the growing bones of children is vastly different than treating adults.
"Treating the growing bones of children is vastly different than treating adults. Not only are children’s bones and joints still developing and changing, but you must consider each child’s unique activity levels along with their physical and emotional needs."
