Brenner Children’s pediatric orthopaedics program is one of the largest and most extensive pediatric orthopaedic centers in western North Carolina. Our team of pediatric experts treat children of all ages using the latest in technology and medical advancements.

We offer a wide range of care and services, customized to each patient’s specific health care needs. We work closely with other specialties within Brenner along with our patients’ pediatricians to incorporate a multidisciplinary approach to treatment and care. 

At Brenner, our pediatric orthopaedic surgeons use state-of-the-art surgical procedures to help pediatric patients with all types of orthopaedic conditions, including bone and soft tissue tumors, clubfoot, congenital deformities, hip dysplasia, limb deficiencies, scoliosis, sports injuries (such as fractures), pediatric trauma and conditions affecting the hand, wrist, foot and ankle.

Investigating the Best Possible Methods for Treatment

We work closely with each family through our patients’ period of care and thoroughly investigate the best possible treatment plan for our pediatric patients. Whenever possible, we look for minimally invasive procedures that require less time in surgery and have the fastest recovery time. This results in a shorter hospital stay and less pain for our surgical patients. 

Family-Centered Care

At Brenner, we believe in the philosophy of family-centered care. We work closely with families to develop individualized and customized treatment plans for their child and are always available to answer any questions parents and other family members may have. Our pediatric surgical area is specially designed so that families can stay with their children up to the point of surgery and immediately afterwards.
