Shriners Children's is one of the largest networks of hospitals, medical centers and outpatient facilities in North America that specialize in pediatric orthopedics.
This gives us a truly unique vantage point when it comes to evaluating and treating pediatric sports injuries with surgery. We treat a wide range of sports injuries, from fractures and broken bones to sprains, strains and injured joints.
The course of care is determined individually for each patient. For patients requiring surgery, our specialists work with athletes, families, coaches and athletic trainers when an injury has occurred to ensure a safe and swift return to play.
Specific treatments and services may vary by location. Please contact a specific location for more information.
What to Expect After Surgery
The length of your child’s visit after surgery can vary from a few hours to an overnight or extended stay. This will depend on the type of surgery and the follow-up that's required.
They might begin rehabilitation during their time with us. Often, we can offer follow-up care services on site or at one of our clinics nearby, or our staff may be able to connect you with highly qualified and well-respected pediatric orthopedic care providers closer to your home. Speak to any member of your child’s care team to learn more.
At Shriners Children's, we’re familiar with what makes the pediatric athlete different than the adult athlete. We understand what the athlete is experiencing and how we can get them safely back to the sport they love.
