Paediatric Orthopaedics (Children's Orthopaedic Surgery) is the speciality that deals with
ailments or problems affecting the musculoskeletal system (bones, joints and related soft
tissues - muscles, tendons, ligaments) in children and adolescents.
In the case of children, the overwhelming need is for the child to be cared for as a whole,
and therefore it is necessary for CHILDREN'S ORTHOPAEDICS to be considered a
complete speciality on its own.
Our understanding of the uniqueness of a growing child makes it necessary that a child is
not just treated as a little adult.
Centre for Paediatric Orthopaedics & Disabilities (CPOD) is an institution which is set up
to provide high quality, evidence based care for all Orthopaedic problems which affect the
growing child.
Paediatric hip surgery
Appropriate and timely management of these problems can
avoid potentially debilitating consequences during later years
of life.
Unlike adult hip disorders, childhood hip problems may not
always present with pain and often end up being detected late.
Children usually present with a limp which may or may not be
associated with pain.
At CPOD, we have the necessary experience and expertise in
the management of paediatric hip disorders to achieve the
best possible outcomes.
Guided growth
Correction of angular deformities in the lower limbs can be
achieved gradually by the principle of guided growth using
various techniques of epiphysiodesis.
When there is growth remaining, correction of deformity by
guided growth causes less morbidity than traditional
osteotomies.
Limb Deficiencies
Limb deficiencies are conditions wherein either a portion or
whole of the lower / upper limb fails to form normally during
pregnancy. The limb is either reduced in size or is missing,
resulting in an obvious deformity. Children with limb
deficiencies will face a variety of challenges and difficulties
involving activities of daily living including self care and
mobility. Treatment will depend on the child’s age, the extent
and type of deficiency as well as the child / family’s views on
certain types of procedures and therapies.
Developmental Dysplasia of Hip
(DDH)
Developmental Dysplasia of the Hip is the term given to a
spectrum of pathologies which can affect the hip either at birth or
subsequently during infancy and childhood. Characteristically
the hip shows variable amount of instability as well as dysplasia,
ranging from acetabular dysplasia (poorly developed or shallow
socket) to subluxation to dislocation.
Treatment of DDH varies depending on the age at which
diagnosis is made. Complexity of treatment increases as the
child attains walking age.
