Sports and Orthopedic Program

Whether your kids plays sports or not, experts with the Wolfson Children’s Hospital Sports and Orthopedic program can help your child achieve an active lifestyle.

Designed for growing bodies

Orthopedic injuries affecting pre-teens and teenagers are often very different from those more commonly seen in adults. The Sports and Orthopedic Program at Wolfson Children’s Hospital is designed for young bodies that are still growing, with individual treatment plans linked to learning style and level of maturity.
