Experts in caring for growing kids

At Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota, we see a wide variety of conditions that affect the muscles, joints and bones of children and teenagers. When children and young adults experience these orthopedic problems, they need specialized care—because they’re still sprouting, their growing bones and muscles are much more complex than an adult’s. Our fellowship-trained pediatric orthopedists offer the needed expertise and provide the best care for a wide variety of orthopedic injuries and conditions.

Bumps, bruises and breaks, be gone

Kids are a curious, adventurous bunch—and while that can lead to great discoveries, it can also sometimes lead to bumps, bruises and even breaks. That’s why fracture care is a fundamental service of Children’s. Most patients are seen in the outpatient clinic, but some children with displaced fractures are managed in the emergency room, where the emergency medicine team and orthopedic staff work together to provide comprehensive evaluation and treatment.

Collaborative care

Our first partner in care is you—we greatly value family-centered care. After all, no one knows your child better than you do. We’ll give you clear and useful information and make sure that not only are all your questions answered, but also that all your concerns are taken into account when developing a treatment plan. The orthopedics team also collaborates with other Children’s specialists to provide comprehensive care, whether that be with our infectious disease or endocrine pediatric specialists. At Children’s, you have access to a broad range of specialized services for the best possible care.

And in the spirit of working with others, we follow the standards and guidelines from the following organizations:



At Children’s, we know how important reliable information about conditions and illnesses is.
