If your young athlete has an orthopedic injury, Akron Children’s offers advanced orthopedic treatment and surgical methods. We provide:

  • Orthopedic surgeons with extensive experience in ACL, shoulder, knee, elbow, hand and ankle procedures.
  • A post-surgery plan our orthopedic surgeons created – the first such guidelines in the United States – that reduces the use and risks of narcotics while providing good pain control for patients.
  • Fracture Clinic, led by providers who understand healing kids’ broken bones is vastly different from the way adult injuries are treated.
  • Hand and Upper Extremity Clinic, among the only programs of its kind in the country, which treats kids with athletic injuries of the hand, wrist and elbow.
  • Spine Center, which uses innovative technologies and techniques to care for kids and teens with abnormal curvature of the spine such as scoliosis.
