Dayton Children’s offers outpatient pediatric orthopaedic care at five locations—on our main campus in Dayton and at clinics in Centerville, Franklin, Springboro and Troy. A referral from your child’s primary care doctor is usually not necessary. We offer same- or next-day appointments for urgent needs. For non-urgent needs, we can usually schedule an appointment within a week or two.
Dayton Children’s pediatric orthopaedic surgeons value their relationship with patients and families. During each appointment, they take as much time as necessary to explain the diagnosis and treatment options, answer questions and discuss next steps.
The Dayton Children’s sports medicine center is a great resource for kids who have experienced a sports-related injury. Our team of certified, sports medicine trained specialists knows how such injuries affect young bodies and growth. They are committed to getting athletes back to the activities they enjoy as quickly and safely as possible. Appointments are available on our main campus and in Springboro.

Our congenital and pediatric hand care team treats hand, wrist and elbow trauma, fractures, tendon and nerve injuries, and congenital hand conditions such as radial club hand, polydactyly ( extra finger) and syndactyly ( joined fingers).
The team is composed of specialists in hand surgery, physical mediciane and rehabilitation, neurology, pain management, occupatioanl therapy and hand therapy.
Other Orthopaedic Conditions
Our team also cares for children who have orthopaedic conditions related to cerebral palsy or myelomeningocele (spina bifida). When these patients come to the hospital for a check-up with their primary specialist at Dayton Children’s, one of our physicians can be available during that appointment to address any orthopaedic concerns. These patients also can make a separate appointment at one of our orthopaedic clinics.
