For the most basic orthopedic conditions to the most complex, our pediatric orthopedic surgeons work in partnership with orthopedic and rehabilitation medicine specialists at Children’s Hospital Colorado to provide the safest and most effective surgical treatments.
Because surgery can be challenging for patients, our team may first recommend a non-operative approach, such as bracing or casting for infants with scoliosis. However, if surgery is the best option, our team of experienced pediatric orthopedic surgeons offers innovative approaches with outcomes among the best in the nation.

At Children’s Colorado, we have 14 dedicated pediatric orthopedic surgeons who perform more than 3,500 procedures a year in operating rooms specially designed for young patients.
Our surgeries are planned and performed in partnership with orthopedic doctors, physician assistants, rehabilitation medicine specialists and nurses. This entire team is specially trained and experienced in caring for young patients before and after surgery, from basic to complex operations.
Because of the large number of patients we see, our team is one of the most experienced in the country in planning surgical treatments for children and young adults with all types of orthopedic conditions. In addition to being a regional referral center for broken bones and sports injuries, we are a national referral center for complex surgeries addressing spine, hip and hand problems/disorders, bone tumors, as well as neuromuscular conditions like cerebral palsy.
Because our team understands kids so well – including their growth and developmental stages – our approach to surgeries and rehabilitation are always age-appropriate. And for complex patients with long-term needs, Children’s Colorado offers continuity of care into young adulthood, which means we follow patients into their 20s and then help them transition to an adult provider whenever needed.

At the Orthopedics Institute, we’re proud to offer access to innovative surgeries and technological resources to improve quality of life and treatment outcomes. Here are a few highlights:
Lastly, because surgery can be tough on kids and their family, we offer several family-centered support services, such as a monthly spine surgery orientation class and a Welcome Program to introduce families to our hospital and other resources.
Children’s Colorado offers the region’s most advanced pediatric spine surgery options, and we’re continually working to improve quality and patient outcomes through innovative processes.
