At the Maryland Pediatric Orthopaedic Center (MPOC), our mission is to provide the quality and excellent care that you would expect from the best academic centers, with the compassion and convenience of your local family doctor.
At MPOC we take care of the entire spectrum of pediatric orthopaedic problems from birth to skeletal maturity (teenagers). We also understand that managing the child is different from the adult, not just as a result of physical differences, but also due to differences in social and emotional development.
We appreciate that the parents of a child, and the nurturing relationship between a child and their family are equally important elements in the overall orthopaedic care and treatment of the patient. We try to incorporate the many other unique aspects of a child's life, such as school, community, and individual interests, into the overall treatment process.
At MPOC we have expertise in treating disorders of growth and development of the skeleton, muscles, and joints in children. Our knowledge and understanding of normal growth and development enables us to differentiate abnormal patterns or growth from normal variations. Thus we are able to effectively interpret, diagnose, and treat skeletal abnormalities in children and adolescents.
