Meet the Team

Children's hip conditions are much different than hip conditions in adults, so where you take them matters. Our orthopaedic specialists are trained in recognizing and treating pediatric hip conditions and working directly with children to help them recover more quickly. We work with patients and their families to set and reach goals together. Our Hip Program is led by Tim Schrader, MD.
