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's orthopedic and spine conditions. The Children's Orthopaedic & Spine Center has eagerly awaited the addition of two amazingly trained orthopedic surgeons to make this center a reality.
One was the previous Chief of Pediatric Orthopedics and Scoliosis for the entire United States Air Force as well as the consultant to the Surgeon General for pediatric orthopedics. His extensive experience and skill are matched by his demeanor and professionalism. Our second Pediatric Orthopaedic surgeon has triple fellowship training in orthopedic pediatrics and pediatric deformity at the Cincinnati Children's Hospital followed by even further intensive training in spine surgery with a combined fellowship in neurosurgical and orthopedic spine surgery from the Mayo Clinic.
This amazing duo will certainly enhance the children's center's ability as a comprehensive clinic to provide care for all ages of patients with orthopedic and spine abnormalities. Coupled with the fact that the center has created one of the most exciting and alluring pediatric orthopedic offices in the country. The Children's Orthopaedic & Spine Center is extremely excited about the possibilities of this new service being offered by the orthopedic and spine Institute.
The clinic was designed to be an amazing environment of both encouragement and motivation to not only get well but to attain almost a "superhero-like" improvement. The waiting room and exam space have been decorated with a superhero theme with life-sized superheroes, memorabilia/collectible items that are sure to catch the attention of anyone exposed to the clinic. The Children's Orthopaedic & Spine Center is going to great lengths to make the clinic a memorable experience for anyone who passes through its doors.
The children's center is sure that anyone receiving care in this facility will be excited about both the environment and the care that is being provided. If a child is injured or has an orthopedic or spine condition which warrant evaluation and treatment including both conservative and operative care, we encourage all to give the children's orthopaedic and spine center the opportunity to prove that what the children's orthopaedic center is doing is second to none. At the very least, come check out what is possibly the coolest pediatric office in the country!”
Once the superhero theme, which will include life-sized superheroes, is completed, the Children’s Orthopaedic & Spine Center will be the only of its kind. Its unique, relaxed atmosphere is being created for the benefit of the children who visit the center. OSI puts patients first, and that doesn’t stop at any age, no matter how old or young. Due to its well thought-out appearance and its concentration on an entertaining and lively theme, the Children’s Orthopaedic & Spine Center is a tremendous success on behalf of OSI.
