Orthopedic Surgery to Meet Needs in Pediatrics

logo

Orthopedic surgery has made a lot of professional and amateur athletes able to compete and play for years after an injury. Surgeons have also made it possible for individuals with degenerative diseases to experience relief and improve their overall quality of life. These surgeries focus on the areas of the body that are a complex combination of muscles and bones working together, including various joints and the spine. These areas can be prone to injury for those engaging in hard physical activities, but there is also a need for repair due to the regular aging of the body and those effects. Missouri Delta Medical Center has a great team of orthopedic surgeons and physicians to help individuals get treatment for those various needs.

These types of surgeries are not limited to just adults. Children may also have needs that require the trained eye and hand of an orthopedic surgeon. With Pediatrics, the body is still growing and changing which requires a different course of action than one taken for a fully developed adult. A young child or even a teenager may require different treatment strategies to account for space to grow and change. However, these specialists may also be able to help treat skeletal deformities that arise from individuals at birth. They can determine whether a physical deformity is worth performing surgery on, or if that difference may fix itself over time–eliminating the need for unnecessary surgeries. A surgeon skilled in working with children can assess a variety of problems, even when the smallest of patients can’t describe what hurts or what the problem may be.

Surgeons with a specialty in Pediatrics are a great resource to have for families with orthopedic concerns about their children. They are familiar with the stress that arises from a family when they are dealing with the injury or other issue in their little one. They understand that kids require a special kind of treatment and can often be more effective and diagnosing a problem and treating it than a surgeon or physician with less experience in that age group. Orthopedic concerns can be scary no matter what age the patient may be, but with the right doctor, things can suddenly seem a lot brighter.
