Pediatric Fracture and Casting Clinic

For many children, sustaining a broken bone is part of growing up. Of course, that doesn't make it any less frightening for the child. The truth is that no two fractures are ever the same. While some require nothing more than an X-ray and simple casting, others may necessitate more in-depth intervention, like surgery or physical therapy.

Shriners Hospitals for Children covers the wide spectrum of bone fractures, providing exceptional orthopaedic care for all types of pediatric injuries.

Why visit the fracture and casting clinic?

As a parent, you know that you can never predict when a child will get hurt. Whether it's a Saturday soccer game or a playground mishap, broken bones can occur completely without warning. The good news is that children's bones are generally pretty resilient and tend to heal more rapidly than adults' do, especially with the attention and expertise of a specialized and experienced pediatric orthopaedic team.

Shriners Hospitals for Children's fracture and casting clinics streamline the evaluation and treatment process, offering outstanding care in one setting. Our pediatric orthopaedic physicians and surgeons are dedicated to delivering care in a warm, caring environment.

The fracture and casting clinic provides truly comprehensive fracture care that's tailored to each individual child. Common treatment approaches include:

  • X-rays
  • Casting
  • Splinting
  • Surgery
  • Fracture reduction: Procedure to return a broken bone to its proper alignment
  • Follow-up care
  • Referrals for physical or occupational therapy
  • Interpreter services

Shriners Hospitals for Children is more than a convenient location for fracture care. We depend on the most reliable and recent medical technology and scientific research to guide the way we evaluate, diagnose and treat our patients’ injuries – from clean breaks to more complex fractures.
