Pediatric Orthopedics

From birth through adolescent years, the Crystal Clinic Orthopaedic Center has the expertise and skill to enhance your child's quality of life.

Clinic Orthopaedic Center surgeons can treat your child for any condition, which may begin with congenital conditions that affect the musculoskeletal system -- such as clubfoot and developmental hip dysplasia -- and proceeding into the toddler years with the fractures that may be experienced.

More children are playing sports at a younger age and doing so on a year-round basis, leaving them susceptible to overuse injuries. Many of these conditions can be prevented or treated with proper training and stretching. Children are also subject to unique injuries to their bones because of a structure known as a growth plate. Injury to this structure -- a growth plate fracture -- can result in shortening or angular deformity of the arm or leg.

Adolescents playing sports are experiencing devastating injuries that require reconstructive surgery. Crystal Clinic Orthopaedic Center surgeons have the technical expertise to perform surgery in a way that may allow their patients to be back on the field sooner than ever before.

Children's Orthopaedic Conditions We Treat

Crystal Clinic Orthopaedic Center surgeons repair meniscal tears and reversing damage from various bone disorders, and they can perform multi-ligament reconstructions, including:

  • Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL)
  • Posterior cruciate ligament (PCL)
  • Medial collateral ligament (MCL)
  • Lateral collateral ligament (LCL)

Our Pediatric Orthopedic Specialists

Pediatric orthopedic specialist Paul R. Fleissner, Jr., M.D. is on the cutting edge of research, preparing a study on a technique to enhance healing after ACL reconstruction surgery.

As your children transition into adulthood, their medical care can seamlessly transition to one of our other Crystal Clinic Orthopaedic Center specialists. There is no need to transfer to an entirely different practice.
