Vanderbilt Bone & Joint / Pediatric Bone & Joint Care

Pediatric Bone & Joint Care

Vanderbilt Bone & Joint experts have extensive experience dealing with children’s injuries. We specialize in ‘oops’ – for when your child suffers a fracture, sprain, strain or sports injury. We have all the appropriate-sized braces, crutches and splints to fit your child.

At Vanderbilt Bone & Joint, we know children have specific needs due to their growing bones and muscles. We work to prevent injuries to ensure your child is healthy during these growing stages.
