Children are active people. Whether it’s playing tag, jump rope, team sports or standing video games, they’re frequently on the move. With so much movement, the odds of them falling and hurting themselves are high. When children fall, they might break a bone (fracture) or twist an ankle.

Fortunately, the Pediatric Orthopedics physicians and team at Levine Children’s Hospital in Charlotte, NC, are specially trained in treating the fragile and still-developing bones of children, adolescents and teens.

Whether a cast, crutches or just some rest is needed, our team can help your child get back to his or her active lifestyle. With on-site radiology services, we’ll get you the diagnosis your child needs quickly so the healing process can begin.

Your child’s doctor may refer you to a pediatric orthopedic specialist, or you can schedule an appointment with us directly by calling 704-381-8840.
