Pediatric Orthopaedics Faculty

The Division of Pediatric Orthopaedics at Children’s Hospital of Michigan – Detroit Medical Center has earned a national reputation of providing cutting edge care in pediatric orthopedic surgery and medicine. Each year our faculty treats thousands of infants, children, and adolescents. Our core faculty of board-certified pediatric orthopaedists are trained to manage a range of developmental and traumatic pathologies that affect the pediatric musculoskeletal system. We take great care in providing a resident curriculum that teaches both surgical and non-surgical treatment of conditions such as scoliosis, limb length discrepancies, hip dysplasia, club foot, and pediatric to adolescent fractures.
