St. Luke's Children's Fracture Clinic
At St. Luke's Children's Fracture Clinic, our pediatric fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeons are committed to providing the highest quality care in the most cost-effective manner, for all children from birth into young adulthood.
Our goal in treating fractures and other injuries in children is to achieve uncomplicated healing and the greatest return of function, efficiently evaluating and expertly managing children's injuries in a timely manner. Optimal results require an understanding of the critical role of open growth plates and remaining growth of the injured area, in relation to the type of injury.
At our daily fracture clinics, held Monday through Friday, we are able to see new trauma referrals in a timely fashion-within 12 hours of injury or sooner. With in-house x-ray and expert casting and splinting services, our fellowship-trained pediatric orthopaedic surgeons can efficiently evaluate and definitively manage the injury.
If emergency room services are not urgently needed, we can save cost and reduce delays in orthopaedic care.
