Award-Winning Care for Pediatric Fractures

With pediatric fractures, it’s important that children see the right specialist, right from the start. When parents take kids to emergency rooms designed for adults, there’s always the risk of incorrect diagnosis and treatment. One study of children treated for fractures at emergency rooms or non-specialty urgent care centers found that 93% of splints were placed improperly.(1)

Treatment delivered by a physician who is not an orthopedic specialist could result in problems for your patient, now and in the future, such as:

  • A slower recovery

  • Bones that don’t heal correctly

  • Damaged growth plates

  • Chronic pain

  • A failure to regain full range of motion

The staff at Ahmanson Foundation Fracture Center at LuskinOIC are specialists in pediatric orthopedic fractures, and have diagnosed and treated thousands of kids to prevent further issues as children grow. At LuskinOIC, we treat all types of pediatric fractures.
