Fracture Clinic

Akron Children’s Hospital is the destination of choice for treating broken bones. We recognize that children are not just "little adults," and the treatment of broken bones is vastly different from the way adults are treated. We understand pediatric bones and their amazing capacity for healing, and have the knowledge and experience to provide expert fracture care.

The Akron Children’s fracture team is led by providers who specialize in the treatment of bones, muscles and joints. We understand the role of the growth plate in the treatment of these fractures. If the growth plate is damaged by a fracture or another injury, the bone may stop growing. These “growth arrests” permanently stop a bone’s development and change how it functions. In the event that this does occur, our specialists have the knowledge to care for this problem.
