Mission of the Pediatric Orthopaedic and Traumatology Unit
Provide diagnostic, therapeutic and surgical care for congenital, acquired and trauma musculoskeletal disorders in children and adolescents on an elective basis and in emergencies.
Make the division’s experience available from care in the Maternity to long-term longitudinal follow-up of young adults who have after-effects from typical pediatric problems. Provide care for neuro-orthopedic pathologies in collaboration with the Willy Taillard Walking Laboratory.
- Collaborate with the other HUG divisions in providing services, notably by assisting with pediatric and adult patient services requiring expertise found specifically in a Pediatric Orthopaedic and Traumatology Unit.
Patients can be admitted or treated as outpatients. In the latter case, consultations are arranged by the institutions with which cooperative agreements have been signed, as well as with the Clair-Bois facilities in Geneva.
