Pediatric Sports Medicine
When your child suffers a sports-related injury, you want someone who knows how to address the unique concerns of pediatric orthopedic injuries. The bones, muscles, tendons and ligaments of a child’s growing body are much different from that of an adult’s body. Early diagnosis and treatment for sports injuries in children is essential to ensure the optimal response and the shortest recovery time possible.
At Sports Medicine & Joint Replacement of Greensboro, we treat a wide range of pediatric sports injuries, including:
- Overuse Injuries
- Torn ACLs (knee ligament)
- Meniscal Injuries
Children are particularly susceptible to these types of injuries because of their growth plates. Dr. Lucey uses reconstructive procedures that best preserve the growth plate and get your child back to their sport as soon as possible.
For your convenience, we provide X-rays, casting and cortisone injections in our office, and we offer rapid scheduling of any necessary MRI or CT scans, as well as referrals to physical or occupational therapy.
When your child is injured, visit the offices of Sports Medicine & Joint Replacement. We are conveniently located in central North Carolina with offices in Greensboro and Randleman. Call (336) 333-6443 today or request an appointment online.
