The Pediatric Orthopaedic Service is working in close collaboration with
the MassGeneral Hospital for Children to develop and expand the specialized
orthopaedic care and treatment for MGH's youngest patients. The short-term
goal of the Pediatric Orthopaedic Service is to provide comprehensive continuous
care to the ever-growing number of pediatric patients referred to our Department
of Orthopaedic Surgery at the Massachusetts General Hospital from within the
Partners HealthCare System, from the Boston Shriner's Hospital for Children
and other area institutions. This includes providing coverage to MassGeneral
Hospital for Children's Emergency Rooms at Newton Wellesley Hospital, the
North Shore Children's Hospital and establishing satellite offices which will
provide pediatric orthopaedic care in the communities surrounding Boston.
A new satellite office will be opening in the near future at the Newton Wellesley
Hospital. On an institutional wide-level, the Pediatric Orthopaedic Service
works in close collaboration with Pediatric Surgery, Pediatric Medicine Service
and the MGH Health Centers to provide coordinated high quality care for our
pediatric orthopaedic patients.
