pediatric orthopaedic surgery
Children face many of the same musculoskeletal problems as adults, especially injuries, but because they are still growing, treatment of pediatric Orthopaedic problems can be quite different. Most Orthopaedic Surgeons are quite capable of treating most pediatric Orthopaedic problems, but there are some musculoskeletal problems that are unique to children, and require specialized care.
Greater Pittsburgh Orthopaedic Associates is able to offer treatment of Pediatric Orthopaedic problems. All of the physicians take care of routine musculoskeletal injuries. More complex musculoskeletal problems, such as cerebral palsy, are taken care of by Dr. Graham Johnstone.
Dr. Johnstone has lengthy experience with the musculoskeletal effects of neuromuscular disorders such as cerebral palsy. Click on his name on the right side of this page to learn more about him.
