The Paediatric Orthopaedic division of Orthopaedic surgery provides dedicated care to the musculoskeletal problems of children. Dr Venkatadass K is the Lead Consultant of the unit and a long with a team of doctors, physiotherapists and physician assistants work together to provide optimal care to all the children admitted in the unit. A child is not a 'small adult' the tender musculoskeletal system behaves different from that of an adult. Moreover, they have growth potential which needs to be preserved for them to become mature adults. All these make children so special and thus the need for trained specialists to make sure that they get the best possible care.
Any musculoskeletal problem, be it a congenital deformity (birth defect), a fracture involving the growth plate or an infection can cause alteration in growth and deformity. Timely identification of the problem and right intervention will go a long way in preventing long-term disability. Specialised services of paediatric orthopaedics include pediatric trauma care and hip preservation. Hip Preservation Surgery is a specialty developed to preserve the native hip to its maximum function and postpone arthritis. Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) and Hip Dysplasia are two leading causes of early arthritis and there are advanced surgeries available now to restore the normal anatomy and biomechanics of hip and thereby preserve its function.
