Lower Extremities

The team of pediatric orthopaedists at Children's of Mississippi, a part of University of Mississippi Medical Center, includes several physicians specialized in pediatric limb disorders and conditions, including Blount’s disease, a growth disorder that affects the bones in the lower leg. The pediatric care team offers treatment for muscoskeletal problems ranging from the common to the complex.

Conditions we treat

  • Blount's disease
    Our pediatric specialists include a surgeon experienced with Blount’s disease, a growth disorder that affects the bones in the lower leg, causing them to curve out.
