Why Choose A Children’s Orthopedic Specialist Through John Muir Health
Since your child is still growing and developing neurologically, it’s likely that the best treatment options for your child will be different than those with the same condition. Our children’s orthopedic experts are highly trained in knowing how treatment options can and should differ with children. They will explain the various options to you, listen to your questions, and work with you to create the right plan for your child.
If your child’s condition requires a visit to or stay in the hospital, your family with have the opportunity to work with a Child Life Specialist, a highly trained professional who knows just how to put your child at ease, using language that’s easy to understand. Our Child Life Specialists can also help siblings understand and cope, as well as provide parents with educational resources and support.
