When a child fractures a bone, it is a scary thing for them and for their parents, as well. It is understandable that many parents may want to rush off to the Emergency Room with their injured children. But the truth is that the child’s needs may be much better served by seeking treatment at KidMed, Woodbridge children’s orthopedic clinic. The pediatric specialists at our children’s orthopedic clinic in Woodbridge VA treat only children and young adults from birth through age 25. We have child-sized gowns, masks, EXOS casting supplies and other medical equipment so the kids’ health care needs can be appropriately met.
Our KidMed clinic staff will use a digital x ray in Woodbridge VA to diagnose your child’s fracture. Should they require a referral to a different pediatric specialist, we have a network of affiliated specialists to whom we can refer our pediatric patients. Because our Woodbridge children’s orthopedic clinic uses modern techniques, we always stock EXOS casts that are adjustable and effective at treating broken and fractured bones.
Why Our Woodbridge Digital X ray KidMed Clinic Is the Better Choice
Here at KidMed, we realize that emergencies frequently happen after 5 p.m. That’s why our clinic stays open until 9 p.m. on Monday-Friday and until 8 p.m. on weekends. If your child gets injured and you suspect that they have broken a bone, they are often far less traumatized by the kid-centric environment at our KidMed clinic than they would be at a teeming and chaotic hospital ER where adults may be simultaneously receiving treatment for very scary injuries and conditions.
Our orthopedic pediatric specialists understand how to talk to children and get them to reveal their symptoms. All of our staff trained for years to work exclusively with children instead of completing only a six-week rotation on the pediatric wing during their residencies.
If you suspect a fracture, bring your child to our Woodbridge children’s orthopedic clinic for a full-body injury assessment, diagnosis and treatment. We are located at 20 Doc Stone Road in Stafford. We can be reached via telephone at (540) 602-7766 and our fax number is (540) 699-2392.
