A child or adolescent’s musculoskeletal injuries are different from those of an adult. Patients in this age range are still growing, so their bodies’ response to injuries, infections and deformities can be quite different than those in a full-grown person.
Cedars-Sinai Kerlan-Jobe Institute provides expert care for a full range of pediatric and adolescent bone and joint conditions and diseases, spinal disorders and sports injuries.
Many common pediatric conditions are listed below. Additionally, our pediatric orthopaedists treat children and adolescents suffering from the conditions within each specialty listed to the left.
