San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) March 29, 2013
The Orthopaedic and Spine Institute (OSI) continues to be a leading pioneer in the medical field with a new children’s ward that will focus solely on the needs and treatment of pediatric orthopaedic patients. Measures are being taken to make the ward a one-of-a- kind facility with a welcoming atmosphere that caters strictly to children. Adding to that the inclusion of Hongbo Liu, M.D., and Eric M. Ritchie, M.D., both who are fellowship- trained in Pediatric Orthopaedic Surgery and who come with superior backgrounds and credentials, the children’s ward is sure to be a reputable, top-notch children’s facility.
The Children’s Orthopaedic & Spine Center is focused on creating a fun, friendly environment for children to reduce fear and stress when visiting the center for appointments. OSI feels that a center concentrating on young patients is especially important since scoliosis, which is an abnormal curvature of the spine, often occurs before one hits puberty. Children and adolescence also commonly break bones on the playground or obtain injuries while participating in close-contact sports.
Dr. Hongbo and Dr. Ritchie are both considered top experts in surgical and non-surgical treatments. The Children’s Orthopaedic & Spine Center offers the full range of care for children when it comes to orthopaedic or spinal worriments and issues. Both physicians specialize in musculoskeletal care for children of all ages, whether dealing with skeletal deformities, musculoskeletal diseases, or traumatic injuries.
Steven J. Cyr, M.D., co-founder of OSI, is enthusiastic about taking further steps in the completion of the Children’s Orthopaedic & Spine Center. He says, “The Orthopedic and Spine Institute is proud to announce the opening of the Children's Orthopedic and Spine Center. Everyone is excited about this new opportunity to provide unparalleled care for all children
