If your child has experienced a fracture our team of specialists can provide casting, surgery, follow-up assessments and rehabilitation.

Fracture care is provided to children and families on a referral basis. So, if your child has a fracture they should first be seen by a physician, urgent care center or an emergency room doctor. The physician can then arrange an appointment for your child through our referral process.

Please note that our medical center does not offer emergency room or urgent care services for open fractures or injuries that are life or limb-threatening.
