    Clinical Services

    The orthopaedic surgery program at Brenner is the region’s leading center for pediatric orthopaedic surgery; our surgeons perform all types of orthopaedic surgical operations. Our goal is to help our pediatric patients heal by using the latest in technology and clinical advancements.

    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 Children's , 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. In addition, Brenner’s pediatric orthopaedic surgeons work closely with our patients’ pediatricians to provide streamlined care throughout the treatment and healing process.

    Minimally Invasive Surgery

    Minimally invasive operations take less time, require less cutting, are less painful and speed the healing process so that our pediatric surgical patients get better faster, have a shorter hospital stay and have an improved quality of life. Minimally invasive surgeries are used for the diagnosis and treatment of many diseases and conditions, as well as for biopsies (the removal of cells or tissues to determine a diagnosis) and tumor removal.

    Comprehensive Spinal Deformity Clinic

    Brenner Children's Pediatric Orthopaedic Surgery houses the only Spinal Deformity Clinic in western North Carolina. This clinic is made up of a multidisciplinary team of experts, including orthopaedic surgeons, neurosurgeons and physical therapists, who work together to create a seamless and successful treatment and follow-up plan for patients with spinal deformities. We treat a range of spinal deformity conditions, including all types of scoliosis and traumatic injury. In addition, our orthopaedic surgeons and other health care professionals regularly perform spinal fusion, the connecting of two or more vertebrae to increase a patient’s stability, in our spinal deformity clinic.

    Limb Lengthening

    Our pediatric orthopaedic surgeons perform surgical operations that enable continued bone growth in our patients. We also incorporate advanced technologies to treat congenital deformations and traumatic injuries, including self-lengthening nail devices, which lengthen as children grow.

    Hand, Wrist, Foot and Ankle

    Our orthopaedic surgeons are experts in treating injuries and other conditions that affect pediatric patients’ hands, wrists, feet and ankles. We have extensive training and experience in repairing these body regions and helping our pediatric patients regain movement and range of motion.

    Broken and Fractured Bones

    Growing children need orthopaedic surgical experts that understand the ways that their bones grow. We work closely with our patients and their families to create treatment plans for broken and fractured bones that support our patients’ continued bone growth.

    Hip Dysplasia

    Brenner Children's pediatric orthopaedic surgeons have extensive experience treating children with hip dysplasia. Treatments for this condition depend upon its type and the age of the patient. One potential treatment is to clean out a patient’s hip socket, so that the bone properly fits; in older children, we might reshape the hip’s ball so that it fits better into the socket.

    Oncology Care

    Our multidisciplinary team of surgical specialists works closely with Brenner’s pediatric oncologists to treat a wide range of cancer-related problems in pediatric patients. We help with cancer diagnosis and treatment of brain and spinal column tumors and perform biopsies and remove tumors through minimally invasive surgeries.

    Trauma Surgery

    A pediatric orthopaedic surgeon trained to provide care for children is always on call at Brenner Children’s Hospital’s emergency department to care for patients with trauma-related issues. We perform trauma-related operations for all types of conditions. Whether a child has an accident riding a bike or in a car, a surgical expert is ready to assist and treat him or her.

    Sports Medicine

    Injuries caused during play and sports are common occurrences in children. Brenner’s orthopaedic surgical experts help our pediatric patients who have been hurt during play or sports heal and get better. We also offer a wide array of preventative and other treatment services to help support our patients’ active lifestyles.

    Sprains and Strains

    Experts in the treatment and care of sprain and strain injuries in children, Brenner’s pediatric orthopaedic surgeons help our patients heal better and maintain movement and range of motion. We provide a full set of rehabilitation and injury prevention services that help reduce the chance of future injuries.

    Rehabilitation

    The rehab program at Brenner provides services customized to each child and his or her condition. Our physical therapists are specially trained to help growing children recover from surgery by increasing their strength and mobility and teaching them how to move more effectively.

    Anesthesia

    A fully dedicated team of pediatric anesthesiologists, trained for many years in the specialties of pediatrics and anesthesia, work with all pediatric departments to ensure the best and safest anesthesia plan for our pediatric patients. We conduct all types of anesthesia, including local, regional and general anesthesia: 

    • Local Anesthesia – the numbing of a certain area or part of the body. 
    • Regional Anesthesia – a type of anesthesia in which the anesthesiologist injects a medicine to block pain signals traveling to the brain. This may involve the spine, an epidural or nerve blocks. This procedure will make a child feel sleepy before, during and after the procedure. 
    • General Anesthesia – medicines are given to a child to make him or her sleep during surgery. During general anesthesia, the anesthesia team closely watches the child’s heartbeat, blood pressure, breathing and oxygen levels and may adjust the levels of medication as needed during the procedure.
