The term “ortho” means to correct or straighten. At Nemours, our pediatric orthopedic specialists recognize and treat neuromuscular and musculoskeletal conditions as early in your child’s life as possible. We’re here to help restore function and improve quality of life — and get kids back to being kids, no matter what medical condition they’re dealing with.

Since 1940, Nemours has been setting the standards for orthopedic procedures for children who were either born with bone, joint, muscular and nerve conditions, or who develop these conditions because of disease or injury.

We treat kids with all types of orthopedic conditions — regardless of how simple or complex their condition (and their care) might be. Some of the many conditions we treat include:

  • skeletal dysplasia
  • bone tumors
  • limb length discrepancies
  • scoliosis
  • spinal dysfunction
  • sports injuries

Whatever pediatric orthopedic condition or injury your child might have, know that we offer comprehensive, compassionate care — and treat every child as we would our own.
