Always here for you
Patients at Children’s Minnesota have access to some of the best pediatric orthopedic specialists with 24/7 orthopedic coverage in our emergency/trauma departments through a collaboration with Gillette Children’s Specialty Health Care. We also have dedicated pediatric orthopedic physicians on campus weekdays for inpatient consultations as well as outpatient follow-up care for general orthopedic concerns. The orthopedics team includes:
- Orthopedic physicians and surgeons, who focus on the musculoskeletal system—including bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles and nerves. They can diagnose injuries and disorders; provide treatment through surgery, exercise, medication, etc.; and come up with a plan for rehabilitation.
- Physician assistants, medical professionals who conduct exams, order and interpret tests, and assist in surgery, among many other duties.
