If children have a great healing capacity, why do they need specialized medical care?

It is true that the remodeling and healing capacity of children after injuries is better than that of an adult. However, there are some key distinctions. For example, growing children have unique physical or growth plate injuries. If these are left undetected or treated inappropriately, they can heal with permanent sequelae like a length discrepancy or a deformity. It is because of this that developmental problems like hip dysplasia are screened for in babies so that it can be identified and treated early. If these early simple measures are not taken, it will require complicated interventions later that will have an adverse effect on your child’s health.

In a growing child, there are unique pathologies like the developmental coxa vara, idiopathic scoliosis, Perthes’ disease, and slipped upper femoral epiphysis. To treat this, the orthopedic surgeon should have a thorough understanding of the condition’s natural history. This helps in the identification of any potential radiological and adverse clinical changes requiring proactive and early intervention.

Is pediatric orthopedic surgery safe?

Modern practices and anesthetic techniques are extremely safe. They have reduced the incident rate of adverse events. Before the surgical procedure starts, an anesthetist will evaluate your child. This may include a blood investigation. So, make sure that the anesthetist has all the information regarding your child’s medical problems and the ongoing medications.

Surgery can be stressful for everyone. For a parent, the stress is even more. However, it is important that the parents have a positive and calm demeanor as your child will be influenced by your reaction. Also, discuss all your anxieties and doubts with your surgeon.

Are diagnostic tests painful?

Diagnostic tests are mostly painless. The diagnostic procedure that you will be going through will depend on the injury or condition. The most common radiology and imaging tests are X-rays, CT scans, bone scans, ultrasound, MRI, etc. All of these are painless. If you are being diagnosed with arthritis, the doctor might perform a minimally invasive laboratory test requiring joint fluid. This might be a little painful.

Are diagnostic tests safe for pregnant women with an orthopedic injury?

Almost all the diagnostic imaging procedures are extremely safe for pregnant women. The American College of Radiology has stated that a single X-ray procedure doesn’t have enough radiation exposure for threatening the health of the developing fetus or embryo. However, if you are unsure, you can discuss with your doctor the safest imaging procedure.
