Fractures are very common in children. Because of a child's growing bones and growth plates, it is important that their fractures are treated correctly.

Children's bones have an amazing capacity for healing. Even when bone is not injured it is constantly in a state of turnover, continually absorbing and replacing the cells that make up our bones; because of this natural turnover, the process of healing bone also comes quite naturally.

Common fractures:

  • Ankle Fractures
  • Elbow Fractures
  • Growth Plate Fractures
  • Wrist Fractures
  • Leg Fractures
