The goals of the pediatric orthopedic program at Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush are to combine research and clinical expertise to provide the highest quality, most innovative care in a family-centered way and to meet the special needs of children, adolescents, and their families.
The section of pediatric orthopedic surgery is an area of excellence focused on the care of musculoskeletal problems in newborns, infants, children, adolescents, and young adults.
A holistic family-centered approach is taken in treating all patients with a wide variety of musculoskeletal problems including pediatric scoliosis, trauma, birth defects, developmental dysplasia, clubfeet, genetic anomalies, neurologic dysfunction, and walking disorders. It is our philosophy that any condition that affects the child has a dramatic impact on the entire family as well.
