Some traumas are severe, but less severe traumas also need urgent medical care. Broken bones that do not heal properly can cause long-term problems.
The Pediatric Orthopaedic Trauma Program at UPMC Children's Hospital treats a full range of injuries. We see children, preteens, teens, and young adults up to age 26.
Accidents and injuries often send children and teens to UPMC Children's Emergency Department (ED). A member of our orthopaedic trauma team is always there to provide care in the ED.
Not all orthopaedic trauma needs the level of care that the ED provides.
You can also take your child to UPMC Children's Orthopaedic Urgent Care or UPMC Children's Express Care.
Services we provide include:
After diagnosis, we can perform casting and bracing. If your child needs surgery we’ll schedule it at that time.
We also see patients at our orthopaedic clinic for non-urgent and follow-up visits.
