Children and Orthopaedics
Children are central to Orthopaedics. A large proportion of musculo-skeletal problems originate from the early period of growth. Even the name Orthopaedics is derived from two Greek words:
- Orthos - straight
- Paidion - child
The term "Orthopaedics" was originally from a book on the prevention and treatment of deformities in children by Dr Andry.
