Children experience muscle, bone and joint conditions differently than adults. Young bodies need specialized care for injuries and illnesses that impact their musculoskeletal system. Whether a child has a congenital condition, a sports injury or an illness, our pediatric doctors are ready to provide advanced, complete orthopedic care.
Comprehensive pediatric orthopedic care
Whether we first treat your child in the emergency room (ER) after an injury or meet them after a physician referral, your child will receive compassionate, committed care from our team of pediatric specialists. We understand that a hospital experience may be difficult for the children in our care, which is why we work hard to provide a comforting environment that's designed to ease your child's anxieties.
While your child is in our hands, you and your family benefit from our continuum of care. This may include:
- Our pediatric orthopedic surgeons meet individually with every child and their parents. We pride ourselves on the length of our patient consultations, taking the time to answer all questions about treatment and our pediatric care.
- Our support staff helps parents navigate insurance coverage, so you can get the help you need and return to your child's side as soon as possible.
- Pediatric surgeons collaborating with other specialists to coordinate a care plan. Once treatment is decided on, our team helps you navigate your child's care and provides resources to understand their diagnosis and treatment.
- The dedicated pediatric emergency room (ER) at Overland Park Regional Medical Center (OPRMC) allows your child to receive specialty care all in one place, from the initial ER visit to surgical treatment and recovery.
- With all of our children's specialists in one location at OPRMC, our doctors frequently collaborate across specialties. This simplifies communication across the medical team and streamlines the treatment process.
Compassionate pediatric orthopedics
Whether we first see the patient in one of our clinics or in one of our emergency rooms, they will experience our compassion and commitment to exceptional treatment and positive recovery. We understand that, to children, going to the hospital can feel overwhelming and frightening. That's why we work hard to reduce their anxieties and make their stay with us as pleasant as possible. We provide a cheerful, kid-friendly environment that makes even the tiniest patients and their parents feel relaxed.
Our pediatric orthopedic doctors pride themselves on the amount of time we spend with our patients and their caregivers during consultations. We allow patients and their families to spend time with the orthopedic surgeon and ask questions, ensuring they feel comfortable with their child's care.
