In adition our pediatric orthopedic surgery department is thoroughly experienced at treating problems of the skeletal system in children.
With particular attention given to looking after youngsters and making them feel comfortable in a medical environment, our pediatric orthopedic surgeons are second to none in the United Arab Emirates. Our doctors make assessments on the healthy development of children, so parents can rest assured their loved ones are equipped to handle whatever the future brings.
Our doctors have experience with an array of orthopedic problems; including dislocations of a traumatic and non-traumatic nature, bone and muscle deformities, as well as cysts and tumors, and other diseases that affect the bones and skeletal system.
At the Emirates Specialty Hospital, pediatric orthopedic surgery includes the treatment of septic arthritis, cerebral palsy, arthrogryposis multiplex congenital and hereditary motor-sensory neuropathy.
Developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) is a dislocation that can be present in new-borns and until the first year. It describes the condition where the thighbone (femur) doesn’t fit into the pelvic socket. Foot deformities are also treated, including the treatment of flat feet and congenital talipes equinovarus (CTEV), also known as clubfeet.
Legg-Calve-Perthes disease is an illness where the hipbone can die if blood flow is restricted. Slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE), an abnormal movement on the growth plate that causes a fracture on the head of the femur, is additionally something our pediatric orthopedic surgeons can address.
Overgrowth disorders, brittle bone disease (osteogenesis imperfect) and Stuve-
Wiedemann syndrome, can also be treated at the Emirates Specialty Hospital.
In terms of treatments, we offer Botilinum toxin injection therapy, tendon transfer and lengthening, and much more in conjunction with ultrasound scan assistance.
Options for older children include the open reduction of the hip joint (acetabuloplasty), which takes away the area of over-coverage, to create space and relieve bone impingements. The Salter-osteotomy, triple osteotomy and osteotomies of the proximal femur to shorten or lengthen bones, also prove effective for adjusting alignment in children.
Clubfeet can be treated through manipulation and stretching techniques alongside wearing a plastic cast for the foot and ankle. The method encourages the muscles to relax and allows the ligaments to form in the correct position. It’s the chosen treatment up until the child is five years old.
SCFE can be rectified with in-situ fixation, 3D osteotomy and trochanter flip osteotomy.
Axis correction osteotomies and telescoping nails help improve the quality of children’s lives by allowing improved movement and bone development without the risk of deviation.
For axis deformities, correction can be performed while epiphysiodesis or hemiepiphysiodesis fuses the plate of one leg to allow the shorter one to catch up in length, as the child is still growing.
Juvenile bone cysts, where fluid fills a hole in the bone, as well as benign tumors and lesions, require continuous decompression using cannulated screws. The hospital also offers solutions for hereditary multiple exostoses (the occurrence of many osteochondromas masses growing on the arm and leg bone exterior).
