Surgical Treatment for Paediatric Orthopaedic Conditions

At SJMC, we specialise in providing surgical treatment for paediatric orthopaedic conditions. Whether your child is dealing with a fracture, deformity, or limb reconstruction needs, we have the expertise and resources to help alleviate their pain and improve their quality of life.

Fracture Fixation with Special Implants

“While some fractures may heal on their own with rest and immobilisation, others may require surgical intervention to ensure proper healing.”

Paediatric fractures can be a common occurrence as children are still growing and their bones are still developing. While some fractures may heal on their own with rest and immobilisation, others may require surgical intervention to ensure proper healing and alignment. In these cases, special implants such as titanium elastic nails or paediatric plates may be used to treat the fracture. These implants are specifically designed for the growing bones of children and offer secure and stable fixation of the fracture while still allowing for normal bone growth.

Deformity Correction of Upper and Lower Limbs

Deformities of the upper and lower limbs, such as clubfoot or knock-knee, can be corrected through surgical intervention. These deformities can cause difficulty with mobility and may cause discomfort or pain for children. Our team of paediatric orthopaedic surgeons has the expertise and experience to determine the best course of treatment for your child's specific deformity. This may involve realigning the bones or using special devices such as braces to guide the bones into proper alignment gently.

Limb Reconstruction Surgery Using Hexapod External Fixators

Limb reconstruction surgery may be necessary for children born with congenital limb deficiencies or those who have suffered significant trauma to a limb. These complex surgeries require precise control to ensure proper alignment and function. Hexapod external fixators are devices that can be used in limb reconstruction surgery to help guide the correction process. These devices allow for early weight bearing and mobility following surgery, which can help speed up recovery. Our team of paediatric orthopaedic surgeons are skilled in using these devices to achieve the best possible outcome for your child.

Surgical treatment can be an effective option for certain paediatric orthopaedic conditions.
