Pediatric Orthopedics

Serving about 7,000 children each year, our orthopedic surgeons are among the most experienced in the state in treating complex orthopaedic problems, using the most advanced techniques, both surgical and non-surgical.

We provide unique care for a wide range of childhood injuries, disorders and diseases of the musculoskeletal system — the bones, muscles and joints. Serving about 7,000 children each year, our orthopedic surgeons are among the most experienced in the state in treating complex orthopedic problems, using the most advanced techniques, both surgical and non-surgical.

We are:

  • Internationally recognized for our neuromuscular clinics, where we manage the care of children with neuromuscular diseases such as cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy and spina bifida.
  • One of the few centers in Virginia to provide comprehensive care for pediatric spinal deformities, such as scoliosis and kyphosis caused by spinal cord trauma, congenital malformation, neuromuscular conditions and unknown causes.
  • The only hospital in Virginia to offer a congenital hand clinic for treating deformities such as missing fingers and webbed fingers.

Prosthetic and Orthotic Services

Children with debilitating musculoskeletal conditions may have hope for a better quality of life through the use of orthotics (braces and other support devices that improve the function of disabled body parts) or prosthetics (artificial limbs or other body parts). We provide in-house prosthetic and orthotic services, evaluating the personal needs of each patient and custom fitting the appropriate, most technically advanced devices.

Outreach Clinics

Providing Care Beyond Charlottesville

We offer five outreach clinics in Bristol, Va., each year, providing orthopedic screening services for children and serving as a resource for doctors in the Southwest Virginia region. For more information about these clinics, contact the Pediatric Orthopedic Clinic at the Kluge Children’s Rehabilitation Center.
