Pediatric Orthopaedic Specialists of Southern Arizona
Broken bones in children pose special risks. Parents and coaches should be aware of hard-to-detect fractures that can result in disturbed recovery, which may be permanently damaging. A growth plate fracture can only be detected by X-ray – one reason it is important to get an injured child to a pediatric orthopaedic surgeon.
Ortho Fast Track is a program in which patients with newly broken bones can be seen within a few days of the accident. Same-day appointments may be arranged for children with a physician referral.
If your child experiences an injury and needs urgent orthopaedic care, call Tucson Orthopaedic Institute and request an Ortho Fast Track appointment.
