The Euroclinic Children’s Hospital Orthopedics Department has been operating since 2002, with the aim of caring for and treating children with congenital or acquired orthopedic disorders.
Assisted by other specialties (such as radiology, ultrasounds, microbiology, and CT or MRI whenever necessary), the Department physicians achieve early and fast diagnosis of orthopedic conditions.
The experienced nursing staff stand by young patients and offer top healthcare services and support, both to the children and their families.
A wide range of pediatric orthopedic procedures, both involving trauma and congenital disorders, are performed at the Pediatric Orthopedics Department.
The Department can handle the following conditions:
- Developmental dysplasia of the hip using the most specialized diagnostic tool available, the hip ultrasound.
- Cerebral palsy. In this case, the Department closely collaborates with a special unit for cerebral palsy located within the Pediatric Orthopedic Clinic of the Lund University Hospital, Sweden. The aim is to perform check-ups and offer early treatment through the CPUP healthcare program. The program has a proven track record of reducing severe deformities and major surgical procedures in children.
- Musculoskeletal tumors. Early diagnosis and identification is achieved in partnership with one of the largest oncology centers in Europe, the Istituto Ortopedico Rizzoli in Bologna, Italy.
- Limb lengthening on the grounds of congenital or traumatic deformities using both circular fixators (Ilizarov) and unilateral fixators or a combination of these.
- Monitoring scoliosis for early diagnosis and proper treatment.
- Fracture stabilization in polytraumatized children, in accordance with the current international guidelines.
Due to the extreme nature and emotional strain caused by these conditions, special attention is given to the psychological support of children and their families.
