Seattle Children’s Fracture Program specializes in fractures and growth plate injuries in children and adolescents. We are part of Orthopedics and Sports Medicine, a team of pediatricians, pediatric orthopedic surgeons, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses, athletic trainers, certified medical assistants, registered orthopedic technologists and sports physical therapists.
We have the knowledge and experience to give your child expert fracture care, from a splint or cast, to complex surgery, to rehabilitation. We treat about 2,000 children and teens with fractures each year. Many kids we see were hurt in sports or other active play. In the summer, when kids play the hardest, we see 10 fractures on our busiest days.
Many of the patients we treat are referred to us from other doctors and hospitals throughout the Pacific Northwest.
