Orthopaedics (Bones & Joints)

Northwestern Lake Forest Hospital and our affiliated physicians treat a wide range of orthopaedic-related health problems. Physicians specializing in pediatric orthopaedics focus on the diagnosis and treatment of problems associated with developing bones, muscles and joints in infants, children and young adults. Problems can range from broken bones, to limb or spine defects, to bone and joint infections and limping.

We will help guide you to the best treatment options for your child’s particular situation, whether he or she requires surgery to repair broken bones, treatment for infections, spine surgery or physical therapy or other general orthopaedic procedures.

Our staff physicians are also specially trained in sport medicine and can manage both your child’s medical and orthopaedic needs related to your child’s sports-related illnesses and injuries. These physicians are also experts in surgical and non-surgical treatment options, as well as rehabilitation.
