Bone and joint diseases in children

The diseases of the musculoskeletal system are the most common conditions among the paediatric diseases. Since early stage diagnosis is difficult, the regular orthopaedic examination of the child at least once a year is considered necessary. Lactating babies require such examinations several times a year starting from the first month of life.

Congenital protein-synthesis and metabolic disorders often lead to abnormal skeletal development of children. As a result, children may be born with limb deformities, or may acquire them during the growth process.

The correction of lower limb deformity increasing the limb length based on the Ilizarov method allowing restoration of the supportive ability and mobility of the limbs and the required proportionality and body composition of the child.

The use of the Ilizarov method gave positive results in the treatment of diseases such as cerebral palsy and achondroplasia (dwarfism). The human height can be increased by 30-40 cm, congenital neglected clubfoot or even congenital or acquired abnormalities of the foot, etc. can be corrected.

The method that I use is unique and irreplaceable for the treatment of patients with curvature, shortening or partial amputation of limbs which occurred as a result of malignant or benign cancer.
