Orthopedic Surgery


Orthopedic Pediatrics

Children's orthopedic problems are quite different from those typically seen in adults. Because children are still growing and developing, their bodies respond differently to injuries and infections of the musculoskeletal system. Indeed, many of the orthopedic problems we see in children do not even occur in adults.

We understand that each child is special, and we care for each accordingly. We also realize that this is a confusing and worrisome time for the parents and family, and work collaboratively with them to develop a treatment plan that is best for the child. We combine compassionate care with conservative treatment, standard surgical procedures, and cutting-edge technologies.

Our pediatric orthopedic surgeon, Dr. T. Desmond Brown, is fellowship-trained and has expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of all acquired and congenital pediatric orthopedic problems, including:

Cerebral palsy
Gait abnormality
Juvenile arthritis 
Limb deformity
Pediatric fractures
Slipped capital femoral epiphysis
