The Department of Orthopedics at Children's Hospital & Research Center Oakland works with children from birth to age 18 to prevent or correct injuries and disorders of the skeletal system, and their associated muscles, joints and ligaments. We are the busiest pediatric orthopedic department in the Bay Area, with more than 13,000 patient visits a year.
When a child fractures a bone, suffers a sports injury, or has a congenital disorder such as scoliosis or a neurological disorder such as spina bifida, it is important for him or her to see a pediatric orthopedist. Pediatric orthopedists treat only children and address each child’s future growth as part of the treatment plan. This is how we help your child achieve the best functionality, and experience the least disruption to his or her normal activities.
At Children's Hospital Oakland, we treat lots of kids, with all kinds of fractures, congenital and traumatic hand injuries, problems due to cerebral palsy and scoliosis, as well as Legg-Perthes disease, limb disorders, dislocated hips, as well as other conditions. Because we treat so many fractures, we also support a clinical research program that focuses on follow-up treatment of fractures and trauma.
Children's Hospital Sports Medicine Center for Young Athletes specializes in getting kids back in the game.
Our pediatric sports medicine specialists have extensive knowledge and experience in prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of sports-related injuries in children and adolescents. We have developed unique programs and offer a one-of-a-kind resource for sports injury care, rehabilitation, and prevention.
No specific referral is needed for most conditions, but we ask you to bring to your appointment any diagnostic imaging studies, such as x-rays, that you may have.
