For children with musculoskeletal conditions.

Treating children and adolescents is much different than treating adults. That’s why St. Luke’s pediatric orthopedics offers specialized orthopedic services to children from birth through adolescence. Led by experienced pediatric orthopedic surgeons, our providers address a wide range of conditions—from common to complex—restoring your child’s bone and joint health. Whether it's a simple fracture or detailed surgery, St. Luke’s pediatric orthopedics, the largest pediatric orthopedic program in the Lehigh Valley, will deliver the care your child needs.


Our fellowship-trained pediatric orthopedic surgeons are among a select group of certified orthopedic specialists in the Lehigh Valley specifically trained to treat children and adolescents. When necessary, post-operatively, patients can recover in our state-of-the-art Pediatric Inpatient Unit or our Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU). Because at St. Luke’s, we believe that your child deserves the best.
