Cerebral palsy is a group of chronic disorders that causes damage or abnormalities to the brain. It affects the central nervous system and changes the motion of muscles. It can be mild, moderate and severe. As a result, the baby will face problems while learning to roll over, crawl, walk, or sit. It can start before, during or after birth in the first years of life. When the child starts showing the signs and symptoms, you should consult with a pediatric orthopedic surgeon. Delays in the development and movement can be considered as the early signs of cerebral palsy.

Congenital hip dislocation or developmental dysplasia is the abnormal formation of the hip joint. In this condition, the ball on top of the thighbone will not be held tightly in the socket. The pediatricians examine every new born baby in order to find whether the baby has the problem of hip dislocation which can be corrected from that stage itself. But if the dislocation is not noticed at the beginning stage, it will be more complicated to treat and correct.
Asten ortho physicians are experienced in identifying and treating bone infections, known as osteomyelitis, and joint infections, or septic arthritis. These infections begin when disease-carrying bacteria enter the body, often after a trauma or a surgical procedure, and spread to the bones and joints through the bloodstream. Without prompt treatment, bone and joint infections can become long-term conditions.
Children suffer from arthritis which can involve any joint. The arthritis can be damaging and deforming if neglected. Most kinds of childhood arthritis come under the general heading of juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA). Generally, children who develop arthritis before 16 years of age are considered to have juvenile arthritis.
