Phoenix Children’s Center for Pediatric Orthopedics ranks as the sixth largest program of its kind in the United States based on patient volume.Phoenix Children’s Center for Pediatric Orthopedics is dedicated to offering the most comprehensive, state-of-the-art care for children who have experienced musculoskeletal injury or are living with related diseases or conditions.
- scoliosis and other spinal deformities
- sports-related injuries
- skeletal dysplasias including dysplasia of the hip
- muscular dystrophy
- foot and ankle disorders including clubfoot and vertical talus
- spina bifida, cerebral palsy, arthrogryposis and other neuromuscular disorders

Spinal Fusion Surgery for scoliosis and spinal deformities is one of the highlights in orthopedic surgery at Phoenix Children's Hospital. Our spinal fusion program includes a pre-operative tour of the Hospital so that patients and families can ask questions and talk to other former patients, families and staff. This has been a major factor in improving pre-operative worry, post-operative care and overall recovery for kids.
Additionally, Phoenix Children’s orthopedic surgeons are members of the state’s only Level 1 Pediatric Trauma Team, providing expert, life-saving care to children and teens who have experienced serious musculoskeletal injury.
As the Center for Pediatric Orthopedics grows, other programs being developed include treating children with spinal deformities, limb deficiencies, musculoskeletal tumors and skeletal dysplasia and a state-of-the-art motion analysis gait lab.
