About Pediatric Orthopedics

Pediatric Orthopedics is a reconstructive surgery and not an ablative one. It requires the power of creation and innovation. That makes it one of the fine arts of surgery. Apart from following the rules, there are some instances where one is confronted to an on-table problem, as in limb reconstruction for deficient parts. My professor used to say "Orthopedic surgeons are fine carpenters" But that may apply to fracture management, not to pediatric orthopedics. I see the pediatric orthopedic surgeon as a sculptor using his vivid imagination and his experienced hands to reshape a deformed bone by holding his fine ostetome and hammer. When you review the literature, you will come across some ingenious ideas that evolved from genius brains, solving some deformity problems.
