Pediatric Orthopedics

When it comes to orthopedics, caring for children is far different than caring for adults. For example, children have growth plates in each of their bones, a major consideration that requires specialized care. In addition, children cannot always tell you what hurts or answer medical questions, and they may not have the capacity to be patient and cooperative during a medical exam.

At Performance Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine in metro Atlanta, Georgia, Dr. Stephanie Martin understands not only the physical issues specific to treating children, but the mental and emotional issues as well. She knows how to examine and treat children in a way that makes them relaxed and cooperative.

Children may be born with an orthopedic problem (one that is congenital or hereditary), or they may develop one (an acquired condition). As a board-certified pediatric orthopaedic surgeon, Dr. Martin specializes in diagnosing and treating conditions that affect children from birth through adulthood. She has the special ability to predict how a treatment done today will affect the child’s future.

Dr. Martin’s vast experience includes:

Muscle, bone, ligament and tendon problems

Neuromuscular conditions

Growth-related problems

Spinal deformities

Inflammatory and infectious problems
