Pediatric Orthopedics

The Pediatric Orthopedic team at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford provides consultation and treatment for orthopedic and musculoskeletal conditions in children and adults with problems from when they were children. Some of these conditions include:

 

The Pediatric Orthopedic team works closely with the Motion and Gait Analysis Laboratory to perform gait analysis. This tests how a patient walks and identifies any abnormal walking patterns.

 

Surgeries are performed in the Ford Family Surgery Center - a state-of-the-art surgical facility designed specifically for children.

The Gift of Healing

Orthopedic surgeons James Gamble, MD, PhD, and Lawrence Rinsky, MD, have become familiar faces in the town of Esteli, Nicaragua, where they have performed a range of orthopedic procedures for the past 13 years. Operation Rainbow, a nonprofit organization based in San Francisco, coordinates the yearly trips that are partially funded by private donations and partially by the Packard Children’s team.
