Our pediatric orthopedic experts care for hip problems in patients ranging from newborns to adults. With a unique combination of physicians, surgeons, therapists, athletic trainers and nurses, our team comprises the one of the most comprehensive pediatric hip care programs in the nation.
We treat the entire spectrum of hip conditions, from hip pain in young athletes to complex congenital hip disorders. Our most common referrals include:
Our three pediatric hip surgeons each specialize in a specific class of pediatric hip operations and collectively perform more than 150 operations per year. This high-volume practice allows our surgeons to achieve the highest possible level of skill in complex hip realignment surgeries, which require the ability to quickly troubleshoot and resolve complications during operations.
Our surgical specialties include:
Care for complex hip conditions requires a multidisciplinary approach. That’s why our team includes members from many specialties, all dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of pediatric hip disorders:
We also work closely with our Radiology department, using cutting-edge imaging technology to analyze each patient’s condition and plot out the best course of treatment.
Our team approach includes experts in the field of rehabilitation, rheumatology, anesthesiology and pain management specialists to provide the best care for our patients, with or without a surgical intervention.
Our multidisciplinary approach to care enables us to create individualized treatment plans for each patient. We utilize state-of-the-art imaging and diagnostic technology and work with experienced specialists who focus solely on hip conditions. We also offer many options for pain control, function improvement and preservation of the hip join.
A dedicated nurse is assigned to each child and family in our Hip Preservation Program to serve as a point of contact for the duration of their treatment. This nurse learns the intricacies of the patient’s condition, the surgery, and pre- and post-operative care from the surgeons.
As a point person for each family, these nurses help patients complete at-home components of their care, like physical therapy exercises and medication regimens. They can also provide answers to questions from patients and their families. They get to know patients and families and understand their needs for a truly personalized approach to care.
Some insurance companies require a referral from a primary care provider before appointments can be arranged. Once a referral is in place, most insurance companies will cover specialty care visits.
We welcome questions and consultations from parents and referring providers. For more information on our program, call 720-777-6600 or email us at email@example.com.
