Kids are kids. They are active with developing tissues and complicated growing cycles that when compromised, can easily require an expert in pediatric orthopedics to heal, grow and return to their normal lives.
The board-certified pediatric orthopedic specialists at Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children are recognized leaders in providing care for complex musculoskeletal disorders, as well as common childhood injuries.
Your Child's Care Team
Rocky Mountain Pediatric Orthopedics is a group of expert physicians and caregivers that focus on the specific needs of children. They work closely with you, your child's primary care physician and your child to provide a collaborative, inclusive approach to your child's care. Their work focuses on several specific aspects of pediatric expertise: orthopedics, concussion, youth sports medicine and scoliosis/spine.
Our recognized leaders treat sports injuries in kids of all ages. Whether it's a toddler playing T-ball or a high school linebacker, we have the expertise and facilities to ensure your child is receiving the best care possible. We also provide education and training for both athletes and coaches to help keep players safe on and off the field.
The Center for Concussion at Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children is helping to pioneer new treatment and prevention of sports-related injuries such as concussion. We also provide athletic trainers to local high schools to make sure there are experts on the field during high school football games. If you think your child is suffering from a concussion please review the signs and symptoms of concussion.
The Spine Center sees, treats and heals children with congenital spinal disorders which are often present at birth and continue to have lasting effects through a child's development and growth.
