Pediatric Orthopaedic Surgery
Children tend to be playful. It is their nature. And during their playtime, it is natural to get hurt. Our Paediatric Orthopaedic surgeons know how to examine a child during this situation, and they handle it pretty well. A child’s musculoskeletal system is different from that of an adult. It is in a developing stage and needs to be handled delicately. Our hospital has paediatric orthopaedic surgeons who diagnoses, treats, and manages children’s musculoskeletal problems, such as:
- Spine Conditions: a normal spine is strong and mobile. While it varies from the shape and size of the person, a healthy spine has a natural front-to-back curve, and if it isn’t like that, the child may have a spine problem such as Kyphosis, Hypo-kyphosis, Thoracic lordosis, and Hyper-lordosis.
- Hip Conditions: A child who has a hip problem may feel pain in the hip, groin, thigh, or knee. He or she may limp or be unable to stand, walk, or move the hurt leg. Hip problems may be congenital (at the time of birth) or may develop due to an injury, inflammation, infection, or tumor growth.
- Knee conditions: Kids and teens may injure a knee in a fall or accident. Active and athletic kids might have more knee injuries. These knee injuries happen when they train too much or makes repetitive motions involving the knee. Some of the knee injuries are Osgood-Schlatter disease, Osteochondritis dissecans, and Bursitis.
- Foot and ankle conditions: when a child grows, one might notice they are not walking straight or maybe walking narrow. These may happen because of conditions like Flatfeet, toe walking, pigeon toes, bowlegs, and knock-knees.
- Shoulder conditions: The shoulder joint is a complex joint that combines many bones, tendons, and muscles, which allows a large range of motion of the arm. The large range of motion of the shoulder makes it more likely to worsen the injury, which can cause shoulder pain. Your child may feel pain only with few movements – such as throwing a baseball – or it may be a constant pain. Specific actions or sports cause many shoulder conditions. Hockey shoulder injuries, as well as skiing and snowboarding, shoulder injuries, are common.
- Genetic conditions: Genetic disorder is a type of disease that includes certain types of birth defects, developmental problems, chronic diseases, and sensory deficits that are inherited from one or both parents. Some of them may be Ear abnormalities, unusually shaped eyes, Facial features that are unusual or different from other family members, Different coloured eyes, Brittle or sparse hair, Excessive body hair, White patches of hair, A large or small tongue, etc.
- General conditions: General conditions can be the different surgeries that the child has to go through after they are born. Some may be Appendicitis, Biliary atresia, Cancer, Gallbladder problems, Gastroesophageal reflux (GERD), Gastroschisis, Hernia, Hirschsprung’s disease, Obesity, Imperforate anus (anal atresia), Necrotizing enterocolitis, Pectus carinatum, reproductive disorders, Short bowel syndrome, spleen disorders, etc.
