If your child has an orthopaedic problem, you want him or her to receive the very best, most advanced care possible. But you also seek a team of experts who are compassionate and view each one of their young patients as unique and special, and who understand and are responsive to the concerns of parents.

That’s exactly the kind team you will find in our Division of Pediatric Orthopaedics of NewYork-Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital. In fact, according to U.S. News & World Report, our service ranks among the best of its kind in the country because this team focuses on the unique needs of children, and is advancing pediatric treatment options worldwide through their extensive research and focus on quality of care concerns for the whole family.

Our pediatric orthopaedic surgeons are renowned for their specialized expertise in the broad spectrum of congenital, developmental, and traumatic disorders affecting bones, soft tissues, joints and the neuromuscular system in babies, children, and adolescents. These physicians are highly skilled in providing our young patients with the state-of-the-art surgical and non-surgical treatments—whether the problem involves a club foot, cerebral palsy, a curve in the spine, leg length differences, orthopaedic tumors, or a sports injury.

And they totally understand the unique issues involved in caring for children and their specific developmental needs. Our dedicated team of surgeons and nurses take into account a holistic view of each child and his or her musculoskeletal system when planning treatment. They also recognize that family involvement plays a significant role in a child's progress and consider family members a very vital part of the treatment.

In addition, a full range of associated resources, including physical therapy, pediatric rehabilitation medicine, and orthotic and prosthetic services complement the care of our patients.

In other words, the mission of our orthopaedic team is to get each and every one of our patients back to their very important job of being children.
