Services

Pediatric orthopedic services are available on an inpatient and outpatient basis. The doctors see patients at clinics in St. Charles and Nassau, as well as at the Pediatric Emergency Department at Stony Brook Children's. Surgery is performed at Stony Brook Children's.

The Department's capabilities include state-of-the-art diagnostics and surgery, and run the full gamut from treatment of simple fractures to delicate spinal surgery. Some of the conditions treated include spinal deformity, joint reconstruction, trauma, club foot, developmental deformity, degenerated and herniated discs, sports injuries, limb lengthening, scoliosis and many others.

State-of-the-Art Diagnostics
The Department has access to the latest diagnostic techniques, which help deliver safer, faster, and more accurate imaging — with special attention to using the lowest doses of radiation possible. Techniques available include:

  • Minimally invasive CT-guided biopsy
  • X-ray
  • CT scan
  • MRI
  • Nuclear medicine

Surgery
Whenever possible, we use the most minimally invasive techniques possible, employing video-assisted surgical technology. Some of the procedures we specialize in include:

  • Video-assisted hip reconstruction
  • Thoracopy
  • Multiple trauma surgery
  • Repair of developmental deformities
  • Scoliosis surgery
  • Limb lengthening/Ilizarov surgery

In the case of scoliosis surgery, we have helped pioneer a unique anesthesia protocol for pain control that gets the patient out of the hospital, on average, two days earlier.
