Orthopaedics

We're here to fix broken bones

The fact is, we fix more than broken bones. Where muscles and bones work together, or should, orthopaedic specialists at Univeristy of Minnesota Amplatz Children's Hospital have the knowledge and experience you need to help your child.

University of Minnesota Amplatz Children’s Hospital provides a full range of orthopaedic care for children and adolescents who have common and complex pediatric orthopaedic conditions including fractures, sports injuries or developmental disorders. Our physicians also are experts in scoliosis and spinal surgery. This video describes one of many success stories for our patients.

Featuring The Fracture Clinic

Available Monday through Friday, if you suspect your child has a broken bone, you can make an appointment to have your child see a specialist within one business day. Call us at 612-365-6777 to get specific information about what records you will need to bring. If your child was seen in a Fairview hospital, medical records and images are accessible electronically. From other hospitals you will need to hand-carry images and/or X-rays to the appointment.
