The Department of Trauma and Orthopedics for Children was established in 1976. In 2003, the department was reconstructed. The capacity of the department is 50 beds. Today, it is a division of the City Clinical Center for Trauma and Orthopedics of the 6th City Clinical Hospital. The specialists of the department provide specialized inpatient care to children with injuries and diseases of the musculoskeletal system. The children from all over the country as well as children from other countries (on a paid basis) may undergo treatment here. Our specialists carry out unique surgeries for fractions and some orthopedic diseases using image intensifiers. They perform all types of diagnostic procedures and treatment (ultrasound examinations, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, X-ray examinations, and arthroscopy).
We use both the advanced minimally invasive procedures (arthroscopy, reduction and fixation of dislocations and fractions under the guidance of the image intensifier) and the traditional methods (closed reduction, diafixation, plaster immobilization, skeletal traction, compression-distraction osteosynthesis).
