Pediatric Orthopedics

Highest Level of Care for Injuries

Pediatric Orthopedic Care You Can Trust

When it comes to your child’s health, University Health understands parents expect both expertise and empathy from their child’s doctors. Our pediatric orthopedic physicians offer both to each patient we treat. We provide a family-friendly environment and always put our patients first when treating conditions caused by injury or disease in children's muscles, bones or joints.

Whether your child is rushed to our pediatric emergency department with a serious injury or enters our offices with fear about what’s next, we provide comfort and reassurance along with the highest level of care in South Texas. Our extensive experience with spinal surgery, cancer and a host of other orthopedic conditions means your child is in good hands.

Nationally Recognized Care

Our doctors are board-certified in their field of expertise, and as faculty physicians through UT Health San Antonio, they are at the forefront of the latest research on pediatric orthopedics. In fact, the founders of the department were world leaders in treating pediatric fractures. They wrote the medical textbook Rockwood and Wilkins’ Fractures in Children used to teach medical students across the country.

Our pediatric spinal surgeons have handled some of the most complicated surgical procedures, helping children with scoliosis and other spine conditions. Our pediatric sports medicine specialists focus exclusively on sports-related injuries. Our other physicians handle all types of pediatric orthopedics, such as fractures, sprains and genetic conditions. Our pediatric oncologist specializes in bone cancer in children.

Our nurses are also nationally recognized for giving patients the highest level of care. We are South Texas' first health system to earn the prestigious Magnet status from the American Nurses Credentialing Center, a designation earned by our proven record of accomplishment for providing excellent care and outcomes.
