We treat different musculoskeletal diseases of children and adolescents. An interprofessional care team provides treatment at our clinic, including a paediatric orthopaedist, nurse, physiotherapist, occupational therapist and a medical orderly.
The national centre of competence for paediatric orthopaedics and traumatology is located in Tyks, so we receive lots of patients from outside the hospital district of Southwest Finland.
We admit patients by a doctor's referral. Visits are subject to a clinic fee.
Our treatments include:
Orthopaedic problems of neonates
- repeated plaster casting of club foot (Ponseti method), treatment of congenital hip dislocation
Children's back problems
- brace treatment for scoliosis and back stress fractures, assessment of the need for operation of children with back problems requiring surgical treatment
