Pediatric orthopedic surgeons specialize in treating diseases of the bones and joints. The board-certified, fellowship-trained, nationally recognized pediatric orthopedic surgeons at Beaumont Children’s Hospital are leaders in their specialty. Actively involved in research, they have developed expertise in cartilage biology, hip reconstruction and management of complex spinal disorders. Experts at Beaumont Children’s Hospital use a team approach to evaluate, manage and treat these orthopedic conditions.

Three areas of orthopedic skill deserve special mention.
Complex hip surgery – Beaumont Children’s Hospital is nationally recognized for skill in performing challenging hip procedures. We serve as a study center and meeting site for international studies on hip reconstruction and preservation orthopedic surgery for children, adolescents and young adults.
Scoliosis – Our pediatric orthopedic surgeons have developed and published their findings regarding spinal cord and neurological monitoring during complex spine reconstruction. Their work makes Beaumont Children’s Hospital one of the safest hospitals in which to have pediatric orthopaedic surgery.
Spasticity – Orthopedic surgeons at Beaumont Children’s Hospital are working with the Department of Physical Therapy at Oakland University to study new techniques for managing spasticity in children with cerebral palsy and other disorders. Researchers are currently evaluating percutaneous myofascial muscle releases (PERCS) in the multidisciplinary clinic for cerebral palsy.
Beaumont Children’s Hospital’s orthopedic specialists are constantly implementing what they learn to improve the physical capabilities and lives of the children they treat.
