Our caring team of pediatric orthopaedic specialists understand the unique needs of children with orthopaedic injuries and disorders. We diagnose and treat a variety of bone, joint, tendon and ligament conditions affecting children of all ages. National leaders in this field, our doctors have developed new surgical techniques for spinal deformities such as scoliosis, and continue exploring more effective treatments for this and other conditions through research.
Clinical TrialExperimental Procedure for Children With Knee Cartilage Defects
This study is recruiting children ages 10 to 17 with knee cartilage defects that cause pain or other symptoms. Our goal is to compare two treatments: membrane-induced autologous chondrocyte implantation (MACI) procedure and microfracture treatment.
If you'd like your child to join this study, please contact the study coordinator Gabrielle Reichard at [email protected].
CLINICAL TRIALBotulinum Toxin Injections With Bracing for Scoliosis
This study, led by Dr. Paul Sponseller, aims to evaluate the combined effect of botulinum toxin A (administered as Dysport®) and bracing in children aged 10-16 years with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS). Participants in this study will be compensated.
