Specialty care for bone defects or genetic-related bone diseases
A child may be born with a congenital bone disease that requires the expertise of a board-certified pediatric orthopedic specialist skilled in diagnosing and treating such conditions, or a child's growing bones may encounter developmental or musculoskeletal conditions that require orthopedic expertise as well, such as bone fractures that result from sports injuries.
The nature of bone disease is often complex, so pediatric orthopedic specialists collaborate with other experts at Baylor Scott & White McLane Children's to ensure the best care for your child. These may include caregivers in rehabilitation services, including physical and occupational therapy. They may also work with other medical and surgical specialists, such as neurologists or neurosurgeons, if the brain or spine is involved.
