Paediatric orthopedics concerns the therapeutic management of pathologies of the musculoskeletal system of children, adolescents and young adults suffering from typically paediatric problems.

Specialists take care of several conditions on the diagnostic, therapeutic and surgical levels:

  • Congenital: malformations present from birth
  • acquired : deformity and uneven length of limbs, osteochondritis, scoliosis, flat feet, osteoarticular pain, infections, bone tumors and pathologies of neurological origin
  • traumatic : fractures, sprains, wounds, injuries related to sport

The specialized consultation of pediatric orthopedics is accessible on a scheduled or emergency basis.

Some pathologies are corrected spontaneously during growth but some of them require management with splints, casts, physiotherapy or even surgery.

The specialists work closely with the Pediatric Emergency Department of the Clinique des Grangettes and are reachable at all times, for the management and follow-up of pediatric orthopedic emergencies.
