With decades of combined experience caring for pediatric patients, we're committed to getting your child back doing the activities they love, in the least amount of time, and using the least invasive treatment possible.

 

  • The growth plate is the weakest point in the bone If fractured and left untreated, the injury can stunt the bone’s growth.

  • Also known as Sever’s disease, this occurs during puberty when the heel bone grows a lot faster than the leg muscles and tendons.

  • Also called Freiberg’s Infraction, this painful condition often affects young athletes, causing tiny metatarsal breaks and bone collapse.

  • This condition occurs when an extra piece of bone material forms above the arch on the inside of the foot. It's often unnoticed until there's pain or irritation in the area.
