Pediatric Orthopaedics

Pediatric Orthopedics deals with musculoskeletal pathologies in the pediatric patient. At Gruppo San Donato dedicated teams, made up of medical and nursing staff, are trained for the management of specific problems related to the patient’s young age, during all phases of the therapeutic path.

Achondroplasia, a condition characterized by a reduced growth of the limbs and a normal development of the trunk, is one of the flagships of the GSD pediatric orthopedic activity: this condition, characterized by a short stature, is disabling for the performance of daily life activities. Istituto Ortopedico Galeazzi offers patients a 5 steps treatment by means of lengthening with external fixators that usually allows a total lengthening of 28-32 cm letting the patient reach a sufficient stature to carry out all daily activities.
