Since the Fracture Care Program’s inception in 2009, the number of hand-specific fractures, sprains and strains has grown. Most of the orthopaedic hand surgeons working with the Hand and Upper Extremity Program also participate in the Fracture Care Program.
What does this data mean?
This graph shows the number of hand fractures, sprains and strains in children and teens that were treated in our Emergency Departments and Urgent Care Centers since 2010.
Why are these volumes important?
When choosing medical services for your child, you want an experienced team. Our team cares
for thousands of children with hand fractures, sprains and strains throughout Georgia, the Southeast and internationally each year. Our experience helps ensure better recoveries, meaning children are back to their active lives sooner.
How do we make sure we are providing high-quality care?
The Hand and Upper Extremity doctors participating in our Fracture Care Program have additional years of special training to treat infants, children and teens whose bodies are still growing and developing.
- Children’s works with six pediatric hand surgeons. We work closely with these surgeons to treat patients and communicate with your family’s doctor.
- Together, we combine the latest technology and clinical methods to offer comprehensive, coordinated care with a family-centered approach.
- We also offer early diagnosis through our consultative services and on-site diagnostics.
- After surgical or nonsurgical intervention, our Hand and Upper Extremity Therapy Program can help patients reach the highest level of function possible.
