Excellence in Pediatric Care: What to Expect

At Advanced Center for Orthopedics & Sports Medicine, our pediatric orthopedic specialists strive to provide the best musculoskeletal care available in northwest Kentucky.

Our pediatric orthopedic experts have extensive knowledge about the musculoskeletal system as well as the different types of injuries and conditions pediatric patients may experience. They also understand that each patient is unique. That’s why they are committed to taking a patient-centered approach to care to provide each patient with the best treatment solution.

When developing a personalized treatment plan, our pediatric orthopedic experts will first recommend any applicable conservative treatment options. These nonsurgical treatments may include receiving physical therapy from a physical therapist, wearing a brace, or taking over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medication. Many times, these measures can bring about gradual improvements that can greatly reduce or eliminate the pain your child is experiencing.

However, if nonoperative care is not effective or becomes less effective over time, our pediatric orthopedic surgeons will discuss your child’s surgical options and help determine which surgery is right for your child. Rest assured that our orthopedic surgeons not only have the expertise and exceptional skills needed to perform the required surgery, but they also have access to leading-edge surgical equipment, which helps to ensure the best outcomes possible.

If our pediatric orthopedic surgeons believe that a special type of surgery is the best option for your child, they will educate you and your child on the full process as well as the steps that need to be taken during recovery. Our pediatric orthopedic surgeons will also answer any questions you or your child may have about the procedure.
