Pediatric Orthopedic

Bones, together with the muscles (muscular system) form the musculoskeletal system and are an important part of the human musculoskeletal system. The functions of bones are not limited to providing body support only, but also, they facilitate body movement, store essential minerals and fats, protect the internal organs, and hematopoiesis, hence maintaining bone health which is very important.  Musculoskeletal problems refer to medical issues occurring in the bones, muscles, and joints and can be treated through medications, surgeries, and physiotherapy or rehabilitation.
