Pediatric Orthopaedic Care at UPMC

Our children's orthopaedic experts at UPMC treat a full range of conditions, such as:

  • Broken bones. This can be anything from a small crack to a separated bone that causes it to move out of place. We also treat complications of broken bones that don't heal correctly.
  • Hip dysplasia. This disorder occurs when a child's joint doesn't form as it should. The "ball" at the top of the thigh bone and "socket" inside the pelvic bone don't fit as they should.
  • Limb length discrepancies. This is when one leg or arm is shorter than the other.
  • Lower limb defects. This refers to a range of conditions that affect the leg or foot alignment. Common conditions include clubfoot, intoe-ing, and bowed legs.
  • Neuromuscular diseases. These are conditions in which nerves create problems with muscles throughout the body, such as sclerosis or muscular dystrophy.
  • Osgood-Schlatter disease. This is swelling of the growth plate at the top of the shin. It mainly occurs during growth spurts and causes a painful bump below the knee. Kids who play sports are most at risk for this overuse injury.
  • Sprains (muscle tears) and strains. Sprains occur when you stretch a ligament attached to a joint. Strains happen when you stretch a muscle too far or put too much pressure on it.
  • Hip, knee, and foot problems.
  • Spine defects.
