Fort Myers, FL, May 02, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Pediatric Orthopedics of Southwest Florida, the Fort Myers-based medical practice specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of infants, children, adolescents and young adults with orthopedic conditions, moved their Naples office to 1265 Creekside Parkway, Ste. 202, in Naples, next door to The Children’s Hospital Specialty Clinic in the Polaris Building. The physicians are on the staff of North Collier Hospital, Naples, and The Children’s Hospital at HealthPark Medical Center, Fort Myers.
As the only orthopedic practice in the Southwest Florida region specializing in the treatment of children, Doctors Brett Shannon, John Churchill and Matthew Wagner are board certified and uniquely trained to deal with musculoskeletal deformities and injuries like broken bones and joint, ligament, tendon and muscle problems in developing children. They also specialize in sports medicine, as well as congenital and developmental conditions such as scoliosis, limb deformity and spina bifida.
“We believe in patient-centered care and our goal is to help the child get back to life as normal as soon as possible,” says Dr. Shannon. “We have seen the need grow over the last two years that we have had the Naples office, so we wanted to improve the availability of our services so families don’t have to travel for specialized medical care, which means less down time from school and sporting activities.”
Treating injuries in children differs from adults because bones and muscles are often still growing and developing, requiring special care. Peds Ortho also employs physician assistants and physical therapists specializing in children’s orthopedic treatment, including scoliosis and sports injuries.
