Article by Dr. Misako McLeod

The foot and ankle is a complex anatomical and biomechanical structure, and even more complex in kids.

Children may suffer from fractures which may invade the growth plate and cause permanent damage and growth disturbances. Children’s fractures are evaluated and treated differently than adult fractures.
