Get the pediatric orthopedic answers you need right from home

   

Nothing is more important to a parent than the health of their child. Parents who want the absolute best for their children will often seek out second opinions when it comes to their child’s health conditions, possible surgeries, treatments for orthopedic concerns, and growth issues. BICMD allows parents to get these invaluable second opinions from the comfort of their own home, providing the ultimate convenience for busy parents who would rather not take a day off of work and pull their child out of school just to see a doctor.

Conditions We Treat

Congenital clubfoot

When a baby is born with its foot or feet twisted out of the appropriate position, this is referred to as clubfoot. Clubfoot is a fairly common problem that usually appears in otherwise heathy newborns. Clubfoot should be treated as soon after birth as possible to preserve the healthy functioning of the affected foot and prevent walking issues in the future.

Clubfoot is generally treated in one of two ways. The first is via the Ponseti method, which involves stretching and casting the baby’s foot over and over until it naturally stabilizes into the proper position. The other is surgery to reposition and lengthen tendons to reshape the foot.

Growth plate fractures and injuries

Growth plates are areas of cartilage near the end of a child’s bones. They are called growth plates because they are the last parts of the bone to harden during development. The growth plates help to determine the adult length and shape of the bone, therefore, it’s critical to get prompt medical care if you suspect that your child had incurred an injury to a growth plate.

Limb length discrepancies

Some children are born with arms or legs that are different lengths. Other children may develop a limb length discrepancy after an injury or illness. Treatment for a limb length discrepancy can be as easy as wearing a lift in the shoe of the shorter leg, or for more severe cases, surgery may be necessarily to make the legs the same length.

Neuromuscular disorders

  • CP, spina bifida

Pediatric hip conditions

The hip joint is a “ball and socket” joint. In a young patient with hip dysplasia, the hip joint has not developed normally, and the socket of the hip joint is too shallow to adequately support and cover the head of the femur. Hip dysplasia, left untreated, can cause pain and premature development of osteoarthritis. Adolescent hip dysplasia is often present at birth as developmental dysplasia of the hip, but it goes undetected and develops into adolescent hip dysplasia. Some hip dysplasia cases can be treated with non-surgical methods.

Pediatric Trauma and growth plate injuries

Pediatric sports medicine injuries

Playing sports is a wonderful part of childhood, but it can also come with injuries that need medical attention to prevent future problems in adulthood. Falls, fractures, sprains, ligament tears and more are common pediatric sports injuries that we address.

Pediatric bone infections

Pediatric bone infections are usually caused by a bacterial infection and is primarily carried through the blood. Untreated bone infections can result in severe bone destruction, bone deformities and infected joints. It is important to seek the proper treatment for a bone infection and the experts at BICMD can help.
