Blank Children's Hospital

Orthopaedics

From birth through early adulthood, bones, joints and muscles go through many changes. Because growth and development is happening at such a fast pace, injuries, diseases and conditions affecting a child's musculoskeletal system can be challenging to treat. The team at Blank Children's Orthopaedic Clinic, together with Shriners Children's Twin Cities, is expertly trained to care for children and adolescents who experience musculoskeletal injuries, diseases and conditions.

Our multi-disciplinary team includes our orthopaedic surgeons, pediatric sub-specialists, nurses, physical and occupational therapists, child life specialists and surgery professionals. We work closely with the family and other care providers to achieve long-term improvement in the child's ability and function.

Should your child's treatment include surgery, we offer a dedicated pediatric surgery center at Blank Children's/Iowa Methodist Medical Center. The surgery center offers a child-friendly waiting and pre-operative area where you can remain with your child until he/she is taken to surgery, and Child Life to help children understand, at their level, what will happen in surgery.

When you choose Blank Children's for your child's care, you choose an orthopedics team dedicated to caring for the unique needs of children. You can count on us to think about your child's long-term health and offer them the treatment that's most appropriate for their stage of development.
