UPMC offers a wide range of specialty pediatric orthopaedics services for the diagnosis and treatment of diseases relating to all components of the motor and musculoskeletal systems, including congenital and acquired malformations or diseases, and trauma injuries.

Specialist orthopaedics visits during childhood are extremely important, because at this age it is possible to identify the first problems including those in the joints, such as the hips. Early diagnosis allows for early intervention to ensure full recovery and optimal functionality during growth.
