Pediatric Orthopedics

Just like adults, children too can get affected by a wide range of bone and joint related problems that require special medical treatment. The pediatric Orthopedics department at Bedi Hospital aims at treating all such problems be it simple fractures or spine, hip and other deformities. We have a highly specialized team of doctors, surgeons and physical therapists who not only help to get rid of the problem but also help the child to lead a normal life. The pediatric department of the Hospitals is equipped with special equipment and tools designed especially for children. Staying at the Hospitals may seem quite scary to a child, this is the reason why doctors at Bedi Hospital aim at providing a happy and healthy atmosphere such that the child is comfortable at all times.

Know More

If there is an acute injury and a high level of concern then certainly the child/adolescent should be seen (i.e. can’t bear weight, significant swelling, etc.) by a pediatric orthopedist. However, I would caution parents about bringing the child in a few days after the injury if they are on the fence. Many lower grade athletic injuries in children and adolescents resolve in one to two weeks with a little rest and observation. If it has been a week or two and the pain/injury persists, then I would be thinking more about bringing the child in to be seen by an orthopedist. In all reality, I am going to get a better and more meaningful exam at one to two weeks after muscles have relaxed and swelling subsides around the injured area. We are always happy to see a patient and provide reassurance but often times in the acute phase I am going to observe the patient and have them come back in a week or two.

If the injury/pain is more chronic, then a good rule of thumb is to bring them in when the pain stops them from doing what they like to do (sports, dance, gymnastics, running, etc.)

Last, any joint/bone pain associated with fevers, redness, or swelling should be evaluated more urgently because children and adolescents can get bone and joint infections that would not surface in an adult because of the blood supply crossing their open growth plates.

If the joint is stiff and hard to move then heat is advised to help with motion. Motion is healthy for joints. If the joint is swollen and painful from an acute injury or overuse, then ice is encouraged. My general rule for icing is 20 minutes on and 20 minutes off for 2-4 cycles. It is the cooling and warming cycles that helps most with the swelling and inflammation.
