Advanced Orthopedic Care for Children and Teenagers

At Ortho Illinois, we recognize that growing children have unique orthopedic needs and caring parents only want the best, most advanced healthcare possible for them. Problems such as traumatic injuries, skeletal deformities, and musculoskeletal diseases impact both the child and family. Our goal in pediatric orthopedics is to address these special needs through the expertise of an orthopedic surgeon specially trained with a Fellowship in the complex problems affecting children’s bones and muscles from infant through young adulthood.

Utilizing the most sophisticated equipment, treatments, and rehabilitation, our pediatric orthopedics team leverages every resource necessary to help children participate as fully as possible in all aspects of their daily lives.
