Specialists

Paediatric orthopaedic surgery

Paediatric orthopaedic surgery is a specialism in its own right, which combines surgical care with a maintenance treatment, which requires collaboration with other paediatric specialisms such as paediatric neurology, functional re-education, child psychiatry and many others.

This multidisciplinary approach guarantees the best possible care for our young patients.

 

Different fields of activity

Neonatal orthopaedics

As a very dynamic maternity ward, with over 3,000 births each year, our Edith Cavell Clinic is a centre of excellence with specialists in the significant neonatal orthopaedic conditions (such as developmental displasia of the hip, club foot and other deformities of the foot, congenital limb abnormalities, birth trauma, etc.)

 

Peadiatric orthopaedics

Paediatric orthopaedics comprises all standing disorders of the lower limbs in children and adolescents (torsion, genu valgum, flat feet, etc.) claudication and walking abnormalities in young children.

 

Curvatures of the spine

Curvatures of the spine include scoliosis, kyphosis etc.

Treatment of these conditions often involves having an orthopaedic corset fitted.

 

Paediatric traumatology

Paediatric traumatology consists of the treatment of fractures in children. The emergence of new orthopaedic implants has seen a significant increase in surgical interventions and has optimised care.

 

Neuro-orthopaedics

Neuro-orthopaedics concerns the care of children with disabilities. the specialism is developing more and more thanks to a collaboration between orthopaedic surgeons, physiotherapists and orthotics.

 

Sports injuries

An increase in young people undertaking sports activities has led to a range of overload disorders associated with more and more sporting activities.

This requires surgery in some cases.
