PAEDIATRIC ORTHOPAEDICS


Paediatric Orthopaedics is a sub-speciality branch of Orthopaedics which deals with musculoskeletal problems in children. A child is not a small adult. Thus the bones and joints in children and their disorders are far different from those in adults. Children are still growing, and their body’s response to injuries, infections, deformities and traumas are quite dissimilar from adults. Children cannot communicate and express the same way as adults and the approach to a child with musculoskeletal disorder needs to be a special one.


We diagnose, treat and manage a range of musculoskeletal problems in children such as:



  • Congenital Problems - Clubfoot, Congenital Hip Dislocation, Torticollis, Multiple Congenital Contractures, Radial Club Hand, Sprengel Shoulder

  • Infections of bones and joints

PAEDIATRIC DENTISTRY


Infants, children and teenagers have unique dental problems and they require different approaches in dealing with their behavior, guiding their dental growth and development, and helping them avoid future dental problems. A Pedodontist or Paediatric Dentist is best qualified to meet these needs and help parents understand their part in the dental health of their children.
