Comprehensive Care for Young Athletes

If your child suffers an athletic-related injury, our care team’s goal is a quick return to the playing field. Orthopaedic surgeons are ready to repair sports injuries in ligaments or cartilage of the knee, shoulder, hip, ankle or elbow joint.

The Orthopaedic Surgery Division offers world-class sports medicine services, including operative and non-operative treatment of sports-related conditions and injuries. Our experts are dedicated to ensuring your child's safe and prompt return to sports.

Our orthopaedic sports surgeons have received referrals and treated patients from all over the world for complex joint conditions, revision of failed surgery and cartilage restoration procedures. The surgeons of the Orthopaedic Sports Center use cutting-edge technology to avoid and treat growth plates during surgical procedures, reducing the risk of growth disturbances such as limb deformity or shortening near joints. Our high level of care improves the outcome for your child, meaning a quicker return to the playing field.

Anesthesia Services provides expert pain management for children and adolescents with unique needs, ensuring safe and pain-free surgery. Our dedicated Pain Management Services use single-shot and continuous peripheral nerve blocks to keep your child as comfortable as possible after surgery.

Our surgeons are experts in state-of-the-art arthroscopic and minimally invasive surgery. We use these techniques to treat sports-related injuries affecting the ligaments or cartilage of the knee, shoulder, hip, ankle or elbow joint.
