Childhood Obesity & Orthopedic Wellness

The Childhood Obesity and Orthopedic Wellness Team is the first pediatric orthopedic team in Georgia to focus on the orthopedic manifestations of obesity.  These conditions include hip deformities, knee derangement, and painful flat feet which can prevent children from achieving wellness and fitness goals.  The total child’s quality of life and mobilization are assessed in a positive, encouraging environment by our team of specialists.  New technologies for radiographic identification of early onset joint disease and new technologies for incentivized success are commonly utilized by our team to help each child achieve personal wellness.  Family support is the foundation to build upon.  Our team can provide guidance to all members of the family so that a complete support network is in place.
