Pediatric Forearm and Distal Radius Fractures
Forearm fractures in children are common and are managed differently than similar injuries in adults.
Kids are always on the go. But when a sprain or fracture slows your child down, their growing body deserves the very best orthopaedic care. At Connecticut Orthopaedics, our fellowship trained specialists and doctors have extensive training and exclusively care for children, teens, and young adults. We understand your child’s unique needs and treat broken bones, neuromuscular problems, bone and joint disorders, and more—with care and compassion.
Our pediatric specialists understand how musculoskeletal problems affect growing bones and they take time to make sure you’re fully informed about your child’s care. We also understand your needs as a parent and that waiting weeks for an appointment or shuttling your child from place to place can be an inconvenience. That’s why our team will create a diagnosis and treatment plan tailored to your child’s needs – starting by getting you in quickly and making it easy to get X-rays at one of our offices or at one of our centrally-located MRI centers.
Treatment is led by renowned, board-certified doctors who uses the most advanced equipment and techniques to care for your child. Our integrated physical therapy teams work hand-in-hand with our physicians to develop unique therapeutic regimens to help your child improve movement and get back to the fun activities they enjoy.
If your child is in need of bone, muscle or joint care, contact us today to request an appointment with one of our knowledgable orthopaedic doctors in Connecticut.
