How Boston Children’s Hospital approaches Little League elbow
At Boston Children’s Hospital, our doctors specialize not only in orthopedic care, but in pediatric orthopedic care. Our clinical experts lead the country in research and care, and have the pediatric orthopedic expertise to treat the unique needs of children and young adults' musculoskeletal systems.
Each year, our orthopedic team attends to more than 92,000 patient visits and performs over 6,000 surgeries. While assessing Little League elbow, our doctors search for signs that change with age and maturity level and deliver the most precise diagnosis possible so children can get back to their lives.
