Adult Orthopedics Vs. Pediatric Orthopedics
Dr. Hilton Gottschalk of Central Texas Pediatric Orthopedics discusses the top reasons to take your child to a pediatric orthopedic physician: 1. Training Pediatric Orthopedic physicians spend four years in medical school, five years in an orthopedic surgery residency program, and an additional year of fellowship training solely focused on pediatric musculoskeletal problems. 2. Children injuries should be treated differently A child’s musculoskeletal problems are different than those of an adult, and Pediatric Orthopedic physicians understand the normal and abnormal growth and development that occurs from birth until adulthood. Because children are still growing, they respond to injuries, infections, and deformities differently than adults. Mention growth plates. 3. Connection + Communication Pediatric orthopedists know how to examine and treat children of all ages in a way to make them feel relaxed. We understand the anxiety and worry that goes with having a child with a musculoskeletal problem and how to properly communicate with family members. 4. Environment Our office is designed with kids in mind, to help create a non-threatening environment for the child, that help them to feel comfortable enough to diagnose and receive treatment. 5. Sub- Subspecialized Even the subspecialty of pediatric orthopedics has become specialized: from spinal disorders to knee and hip injuries to foot and ankle problems and hand and upper extremity problems. Central Texas Pediatric Orthopedics has each of these specialties covered. The Very Best Care All of our physicians are board-certified, fellowship-trained pediatric orthopedic surgeons, who can care for all general pediatric orthopedic disorders, with each physician uniquely specializing further to meet the needs of any patient and their family. Central Texas Pediatric Orthopedics sets the standard for exceptional care of your child. For more information, please visit CTPOMD.com.
