Bristol-Myers Squibb Children’s Hospital is the only facility in the region to have full-time pediatric orthopedists on staff providing care 24-hours-a-day, seven-days-a-week, including emergency room coverage. This means that every young patient with an orthopedic condition will receive attention from a specialist.
Our pediatric orthopedists are well-recognized for excellence in the care of children and adolescents. All have completed a fellowship in pediatric orthopedics, which means they have finished an additional year of specialty training in pediatric care following their orthopedic residency. All have extensive skill and knowledge and together provide decades of experience and expertise.
Our orthopedists specialize in subspecialties within the field, which gives them very detailed knowledge of specific disorders and areas of care. They regularly consult with and refer to each other, ensuring that each patient receives the highest level of expertise for his or her specific condition.
Research and Teaching
Beyond providing expert and compassionate care, our physicians are dedicated to furthering their field by developing protocols and techniques for the treatment of children with orthopedic problems. To guarantee that the most up-to-date care is available to their patients, they are also involved in research efforts, including analysis and clinical outcome studies, and they actively participate in many professional organizations devoted to the care of children.
In addition, our experts are dedicated to sharing their knowledge and experience to benefit other providers. All are published and, as members of the clinical faculty at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, participate in educating the next generation of pediatric orthopedic specialists.
