Our pediatric specialists include a surgeon experienced with Blount’s disease, a growth disorder that affects the bones in the lower leg, causing them to curve out. Treatment options may include braces and/or surgery. Our pediatric orthopaedic care team also offers comprehensive care for other disorders affecting leg bones, including, but not limited to, tibial torsion and femoral anteversion.
