Pediatric orthopedics at Chippenham Hospital offers kids and parents a full range of orthopedic services, including emergent care of a broken bone, like a broken arm, to the most complex inpatient surgeries, on a bone or the spine.
Pediatric Orthopedic Emergencies
Broken bones are painful. And it takes a special touch to make a child who’s in pain feel better. When you come to the pediatric ER at Chippenham Hospital, feel confident knowing our pediatric ER is staffed around the clock with board certified pediatric specialists in a cheerful space designed just for kids. We know how to make kids feel better. We’ve even got our pediatric ER separated from the main emergency room starting at the waiting room and on to our pediatric-only exam rooms.
Pediatric Orthopedic Surgeries
Hearing you need surgery is difficult for even the most seasoned adults. At Chippenham Hospital, we know kids are frightened just thinking about it. From the minute you and your child enter our hospital, we’ll do our best to make you feel more comfortable, like minimizing your wait time and starting the IV line after your child is already under anesthesia. Our operating teams also specialize in working with kids, so they know how to soothe even the most anxious of children.
Pediatric Orthopedic Inpatient Care
Families are one of the most important parts of the medical care team. You know your child better than anyone, and you should understand and agree with their care plan. Our pediatric hospitalists, nurses and other specialists will communicate and work with you on a daily basis. We share all test results and treatment plans so you can make informed decisions about what's best for your child.
