Limb Lengthening and Deformity Correction in Children

Limb Lengthening and Deformity Correction in Children

June 21, 2020

St Vincents Private in Melbourne offers unique service for children with limb deformities

St Vincents Childrens now has a coordinated program for children who require limb lengthening and deformity correction. Nursing staff who are experienced and expert in caring for children undergoing complex treatment, coordinated discharge planning, pin site care and on ward review during treatment means that families have a single service with staff who they know and know them. 

Post operative review is a regular and essential part of reconstructive treatment and this is provided at the same site with physiotherapy, radiology and orthotics as required.

This service takes much of the stress out of what is a difficult time for families and their children and ensures the best treatment can be given.
