Personal Statement

Pediatric orthopaedics is an amazing field that allows us the opportunity to restore activity to kids. One of the top motivations for a child is to be able to play and to be able to run. We have the ability and opportunity to come in and provide that service to get them to a point where they can do that activity. Whether it’s a child who needs urgent care or a child who has developed a specific condition, we are here to walk alongside them and help restore their function.
