At OIC we draw from a wide range of experts and expertise in order to help your child with his or her congenital orthopaedic disorder. If you come to OIC for help, your team could include:
The Pediatric Orthopaedist specializes in the musculoskeletal system of children. They provide surgical interventions when necessary such as tendon lengthening.
The Pediatrician reviews medical issues and coordinates the general healthcare of the patient, in addition to working with the orthopaedic surgeon for pre-operative assessments if surgery is indicated and overseeing medical issues for hospitalized patients.
The Nurse Coordinator assists in making sure all medical orders are carried out, and provides case management and nursing assessment for the patient.
The Orthotist works with the team to prevent unequal or unbalanced muscle groups which can lead to deformities as the child grows.
The Cast Technician helps ensure that the casts and casting regimen your child requires is managed carefully and effectively to ensure that patients heal properly.
