When it comes to your child’s orthopedic health, no concern is too small
Is there anything more important than your child feeling their best and having the freedom to be a kid? At The Orthopedic Health Center, we specialize in the treatment of bone and joint injuries that affect Hudson County kids. We know that kids need a special level of care – our pediatric orthopedic experts will make the entire family feel comfortable and confident as we help heal what hurts.
Advanced Pediatric Orthopedic Care in Your Neighborhood
Your preferred choice for pediatric orthopedics is right in Hudson County, with two convenient locations in Hoboken and Jersey City. Whenever possible, we first exhaust all non-surgical treatment options. If your child does require surgery, our goal is to perform minimally-invasive procedures that provide maximum relief.
Does My Child Need a Pediatric Orthopedic Specialist or Surgeon?
Most kids have active, energetic lifestyles, due to everything from their everyday movements to their participation in organized sports. Occasional bumps and bruises are common, but sometimes a bone, muscle, or joint injury requires the intervention of a specialist. When this happens, it’s important to see a doctor who is specifically qualified to treat children and adolescents, and who can offer the quality orthopedic services that they need. Dr. Edward Feliciano is an award-winning orthopedic surgeon who uses modern techniques to perform simple and complex adolescent procedures.
Timing is crucial here — the sooner we identify the problem, the more likely the patient is to have a positive outcome. If your child is experiencing bone or joint pain, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with us as soon as possible.
Pediatric Orthopedics: Evaluation, Diagnosis, & Treatment
Our team takes an advanced and thorough approach to pediatric orthopedic care, whether a young patient comes to us with a sports-related injury or a more chronic condition. And while prompt pain relief is important, we’re always focused on long-term success. We want strong, healthy kids to become strong, healthy adults.
Through careful listening and advanced diagnostic testing, we’ll figure out what’s wrong and then discuss a treatment plan together. Though we have some of the most highly-trained and experienced orthopedic surgeons in the area, we believe in exploring conservative, non-surgical options before recommending surgery. If a surgical procedure is unavoidable, we’ll do our best to minimize recovery time, making the experience as manageable as we can.
Wherever it hurts,
we can help.
