Paediatric Orthopaedic surgeons look after children with a wide range of bone and joint problems. This includes in emergency settings when a child has been injured.

Our department look after children from the Greater Glasgow catchment in the first instance although children from other areas may be referred on by their local team. Many orthopaedic problems in childhood do not require surgery and we work closely with colleagues in physiotherapy and orthotics.
