We treat different musculoskeletal diseases of children and adolescents. An interprofessional care team provides treatment at our clinic, including a paediatric orthopaedist, nurse, physiotherapist, occupational therapist and a medical orderly.

The national centre of competence for paediatric orthopaedics and traumatology is located in Tyks, so we receive lots of patients from outside Southwest Finland.

We admit patients by a doctor's referral.

Our treatment include

  • Orthopaedic problems of neonates
    • repeated plaster casting of club foot (Ponseti method)
    • treatment of congenital hip dislocation
