This content was provided by Dr. Fitch Duke attracts complex cases that can be difficult to manage. Ive accepted that challenge. Duke delivers quality care. Our orthopaedic department has world-recognized practitioners. But its more than the practitioners. Its the entire Duke program. How patients are managed the respect they receive its all outstanding at Duke. I deal with the immature musculoskeletal system children before completion of growth. There are unique disorders in children related to growing such as fractures in growth areas a spinal curvature disorder called scoliosis as well as congenital anomalies such as club feet or shortening of legs or arms. I focus on getting to the bottom of the problem that brings the patient to me and that means talking with the patient and the parents. There has to be a rapport with the family and an understanding of the circumstances unique to each individual patient. I continue to be amazed and inspired by children who face and overcome medical adversity with such positive attitudes. Its rewarding to see them recover.
