Local Articles in Hellertown

Children often are diagnosed with illnesses and conditions that affect adults, but because of their special needs, they are often referred to pediatric specialists. Specialists in all areas can provide treatment plans to improve health and quality of life.

Pediatric orthopedics

When children injure their bones or joints, they need the services of a pediatric orthopedic doctor. These medical specialists have insight into how children's bones grow and change as they develop.

Does anyone else have access to the children in your home? If so, who are they and what are their child care qualifications?

Sounds like you should be pursuing a disability claim.  Also, you could speak to your previous doctor frankly about your concerns.  
Have they made orthotics for your shoes that distribute your weight better?

Whoops - I just realized that you may have been looking for Angie's List information on providers outside your home market. To see information on providers that aren't in your home Angie's List chapter, you can elect to pay a small addditional fee (generally about $15 to $20) to add another city's Angie's List to your existing memember.

Hello, this is Kyle K from the Member Care Department.

I apologize for my delay. I apologize, but orthopedic surgeons fall under our Orthopedics category which is included in the Health list. Currently, you're enrolled in our Basic membership which only includes access to our Home list.
 
If you'd like to upgrade your membership to the Plus or Premium plan, we'll be happy to assist you with this search. If interested, give us a call at 1.888.944.5478 and we'll take care of this adjustment. Again, I do apologize for any misunderstanding.

Hi,

 

This is James W. with Member Care. Thanks for posting your question.

 

It looks like when you signed up online on 8/5/2014, that you accidentally joined our greater Portland chapter instead of our Salem/Corvallis chapter that your zip code falls under. I have transferred your subscription to that chapter, so you will now have access to the correct area.

I hope this information helps! Please let me know if I can assist further. You can respond to this thread or submit a new Answers post. You can also reach us at 1-866-783-2980. We're open weekdays from 8:00 am - 9:00 pm and Saturdays 8:00 am - 5:00 pm ET.

 

Thanks again!

Carving hip sockets, tweaking joint alignment, real plates and screws in bone and tissue- I would have done it for her if I could have, but the results were fantastic! My daughter tolerated the surgery, body cast, and second surgery like a champ. (Boy did I NOT want to go through the second procedure, everything was working fine, but the metal has to come out and the bone grows around it if you wait too long). All along Dr Edeen and staff had follow ups, in house xrays where Mom or Dad can stand right beside them- which can make all the difference. She runs, jumps, plays twice as energetically as before. The staff always spoke to my daughter directly, explained what they would do (in house appointments had very little pain involved, may be scary to a child) let her pick cast color, band aids stickers etc. Bonus- she loved there waiting room, which is good as many appointment times run over (you may be there a bit longer than your scheduled time)- many special cases, disabilities etc.

Very long story short, Dr

Dr
Hellertown Pediatric Orthopedic Surgeons Provider Name Locked
is the pediatric urologist that has been treating our grandson since November of 2011. He needed a medically-necessary circumcision. In addition, he has had other urinary infection and pain. She has been amazing in the diagnosis and treatment of his problems. In addition, she is available through email for certain things which is all the more amazing. She is the best!

It went very well. It was a reassurance. The treatment was successful. We found out that this wasn't as rare as we thought. They see it more in older kids that have been wrestling or playing football. We're satisfied with the services we're receiving.

My son has congenial foot problems. He has a club foot, and a foot that was rolling in. He's had 2 foot surgeries so far, and lots of follow up visits. What I really like about Dr.
