Our specialty-trained pediatric orthopedic doctors at BoulderCentre for Orthopedics & Spine are able to diagnose and provide treatment of pediatric injuries and conditions.
As a specialized area of medicine, pediatric orthopedics is focused on the study, evaluation, and treatment of a child's growing musculoskeletal system. Normal growing pains are common for most children; however, if they start to complain about more severe bone, joint, or muscle pain or experience a sports-related or traumatic accident, it's important to seek medical attention from an experienced pediatric orthopedist.
