Pediatric and adolescent injury care

Pediatric and adolescent injury care

The injury care program at the Greenville Shriners Hospital serves children and teens with stable orthopaedic injuries that require prompt evaluation and care, yet are not serious enough for the emergency department. Stable orthopaedic injuries include sprains, strains, fractures and painful, swollen joints.

Unstable orthopaedic injuries require a higher level of care and should be evaluated at a medical facility offering emergency services.

Common orthopaedic injuries treated at Shriners Hospitals for Children — Greenville include:

  • Acute and stable injuries
  • Strains and sprains
  • Stable fractures
  • Sports injuries
  • Painful, swollen or injured joints

Why choose us?

We offer appointments with pediatric orthopaedic surgeons within 48 hours, Monday through Friday.

Because children and teens are not small adults, it is especially important to have timely access to a pediatric orthopaedic surgeon who specializes in growing bones.

“It is important to have someone who knows what the growth plates are supposed to look like when examining an injury,” Lauren Hyer, M.D., explains. “Many of the fractures we see are subtle, but we are able to offer the careful eye of an orthopaedic surgeon, all within the comfort of a children’s hospital.”
