Orthopaedic Surgery is an operation on the bones and joints - This could be needed if they have been injured or because they are not developing properly and need correction with an operation.
Trauma and orthopaedic surgery
Children’s broken bones will often mend if they are put into the right plaster cast. Sometimes a pin or a plate is required so that a bone knits tightly together again. The trauma and orthopaedic surgeon is the expert in fixing broken bones and in helping children born with bone or joint problems.
Swollen, painful joints and arthritis don’t just affect older people; children can suffer from those conditions too. The rheumatology doctors are there to help children with arthritis and other conditions that cause inflammation (swelling and soreness), in other parts of the body.
