Pediatric podiatry focuses on caring for a child’s growing feet. Specialists are trained to diagnose and treat conditions related to normal and abnormal development of the feet and ankles.
Feet make up about 25 percent of a person’s bones, and their care can be quite complex. And foot care for children is quite different from that for adults. Pain or other conditions involving the feet must be evaluated because they can affect a child’s walking and development.
At Baylor Scott & White McLane Children's, our pediatric podiatrists work collaboratively with your child’s primary care physician, pediatrician, or other pediatric sub-specialists to ensure your child has the best treatment plan to ensure your child’s health.
