Featured Case Study
Acute, Unstable SCFE Managed Via a Modified Dunn Procedure
The Orthopedics team at Nationwide Children's is committed to identifying new approaches for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of childhood diseases and conditions. The following is some of the ground-breaking work and techniques our surgeons, clinicians and researchers are investigating.
Medical stories, clinical case studies, research announcements and other news from the Orthopaedics Department.
Femoral Nerve Block for Knee Surgery
Femoral nerve block and general anesthesia effectively reduce postoperative pain, opioid use and hospital stay following knee surgery.
Healing Despite Delayed Treatment of Genu Varum
Despite late initiation of proper therapy, physicians improved one case of rickets-induced genu valgum from 24 degrees to 4.
Cast Wedging Misaligned Forearm Fractures
Study shows cast wedging remains a safe, effective treatment option for physicians seeking to avoid surgery for forearm fractures.
Study Examines Management of JOCD
A new study of juvenile osteochondritis dissecans examines which management options work best for stable and unstable lesions.
Alternate Method for Length-Unstable Femur Fractures
Surgeons develop a technique for length-unstable femur fractures, resulting in improved healing rates and earlier return to full weightbearing.
Diagnosing Necrotizing Fasciitis
Pediatric necrotizing fasciitis of the extremities may not cause symptoms typically associated with the infection.
Clinical researchers in Orthopedics are committed to identifying new approaches for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of childhood diseases, taking research discoveries from the lab to the patient's bedside.
