Limb Deformity

Limb deformity pediatric patient

Welcome to the Limb Deformity Center of Excellence

Childhood can be difficult enough, but when a child has a deformity of a limb, it’s so much harder. Childhood limb deformities can cause chronic pain and disability, which can lead to anxiety, depression, and social isolation.

As a parent, you would do anything to help. So would we. That’s why you turn to The Pediatric Orthopedic Center’s childhood limb deformity specialists.

Childhood limb deformities can be complex. Some deformities may be congenital while others can be caused by trauma. While many limb deformities get better as patients grow, others can worsen causing an increased difference in length or abnormal angulation or rotation of the limb.

The experts at the Limb Deformity Center will describe your options and work with you and your child to pick the one that is most effective and best suited to your family. We work hard to ensure you and your child are comfortable and confident in your treatment plan. Our award-winning doctors will carefully monitor your child until the condition resolves or requires intervention.

Childhood Limb Deformity Diagnosis

The Pediatric Orthopedic Center uses cutting-edge diagnostic tools. Deformities typically require serial X-rays and we have the only Nobel prize-winning technology for X-rays in Northern New Jersey – the EOS system – which uses 10 to 50 times less radiation than standard X-rays.

The EOS system provides low-dose, 3-D imaging while the patient is standing, which allows for radiologic assessment in the natural weight-bearing posture. These images allow us to assess the interactions between the spine, hips and legs giving us the most accurate view of the deformity, which is essential for determining a proper diagnosis and developing the best treatment plan.

Childhood Limb Deformity Treatment

Some of the most common childhood limb deformities we treat include: 

  • Clubfoot
  • Knock knee
  • Bow legs
  • Limb length discrepancy
  • Flat feet
  • Missing toes
  • Extra toes (polydactyly)

…and more.

The goals of treatment for limb deformity are to:

  • Straighten the affected limb
  • Correct the limb length
  • Achieve normal strength and function of the limb

If your child has a limb deformity, please do not hesitate. Call today at 973-538-7700. You can also request an appointment with one of our childhood limb specialists today and meet our team of award-winning doctors at The Pediatric Orthopedic Center.
