Ask the Orthopedist: Dr. Morley

Why did you decide to specialize in pediatric orthopedics?

Jaime Morley

I love children, whether at home with my own or at the office with our young patients. To me, children bring happiness and curiosity to new situations, and this always keeps my day full. Pediatric orthopedics appeals to me because it’s so gratifying to see the children go from acute states of injury to being healed in such relatively short periods of time. It’s an amazing thing to witness.

Tell us a little more about your orthopedic specialty in particular.

Within the office, my specialty is threefold: managing fractures and sprains, caring for post- operative patients, and extending care opportunities for the physicians with their patients. I work collaboratively with all the doctors, both within the office and as well as the operating room. I often take a “behind-the-scenes” role as well, providing ongoing care to our patients and their families by discussing results and clinical concerns on the phone with parents.

Do you have a story about a special pediatric orthopedic patient you have treated?

I have several patients that stand out to me in unique ways for clinical reasons. But the kids who really hold a piece of my heart are the ones who end the visit with a hug or kind words on how I fixed their bones.

What is exciting to you about your field right now?

I am fortunate enough to work with a group of diverse orthopedists. Each of us attend conferences and other academic events, bringing back new technologies and advances to the practice, and continuing to educate each other in various niches within pediatric orthopedics. I especially like learning about ACL techniques in the pediatric patient and the latest advances in scoliosis and clubfoot care.

When you are not working, how do you like to enjoy your free time?

My husband and I like to share time with our two girls every opportunity we can. Together, we enjoy bowling, miniature golf, fishing, going to the beach, and walking our very energetic dog in the neighborhood. I also enjoy good fiction books.
