When your child injures a joint, breaks a bone or is diagnosed with a complex orthopedic condition, our Arkansas pediatric orthopedics specialists provide reassuring, expert care.

The growing skeleton presents challenges when it comes to treating orthopedic and sports-related injuries or conditions. Children can experience injuries and problems with bones, joints, muscles, ligaments and nerves. Treatments must allow children to heal while promoting healthy growth.

The pediatric specialists at Arkansas Children’s are specially trained in pediatric orthopedic care and surgery, sports medicine and therapy. All of our doctors completed fellowships and are highly skilled in caring for children from birth through their college years.

We treat simple problems like ankle sprains and minor fractures as well as complex diagnoses such as congenital spinal deformities and knee ligament injuries.

Why choose orthopedic care at Arkansas Children’s?

USNWR Badge Orthopedics 2023-2024We work hard to provide the most specialized and innovative care in the state and region. Pediatric orthopedics is not just for the young child. It encompasses all phases of orthopedic care from infancy through adolescence and into early adulthood.

The orthopedic care at Arkansas Children’s is specifically tailored to take care of your child whether they are a newborn or a senior in high school. All of our physicians have not only completed their medical training to take care of orthopedics but have also completed additional specific subspecialty training within pediatric orthopedics to give your child the most specialized care possible. This includes extra training in pediatric sports medicine, pediatric spine and pediatric fracture care among others.

By working in an integrated system with other pediatric subspecialties, it allows us to provide whole person care. Orthopedic conditions can often affect more than just bone and joints. That is why we created multidisciplinary clinics in brachial plexus, bone dysplasias and bone health and are a part of numerous other multidisciplinary programs.
