When a child is ill or in pain, it can be incredibly distressing and also worrying for their parents and families. We hope to be able to provide the answers that will help your child.

What can we do to help?

While many people often think orthopaedics will involve surgery, this is not necessarily the case. We offer surgical and non-surgical treatment for the children we treat, and surgery is recommended only where it is necessary or clearly the best option. In most cases, surgery is not needed.

We first meet in a consultation as this enables us to get information and understand what symptoms your child has been experiencing. We treat a wide range of conditions and symptoms and you can see these in more detail below.

Answering your questions

Below are some common questions we get asked that we have provided answers to to try to help reassure you or provide information that may be useful.  If you have a question not on the list below, please do get in touch and we would be happy to answer it.
