General orthopedics

General OrthopedicsThe surgeons at Cook Children’s Orthopedics have a broad range of knowledge on how the pediatric skeleton grows and develops. This group provides specialized care for each patient.

Conditions treated

Care and treatment

Patient services range from assessments and examinations, such as X-rays, ultrasound, bracing and serial casting to more complex treatments like surgery. Our orthopedic physicians focus on each patient’s individual needs and work together with a team of physical therapists, occupational therapists, orthotists and subspecialists in order to provide the best possible care.

Requesting an appointment

To make an appointment, please call 682-885-4405. Our receptionists can help you schedule an appointment with one of the orthopedic spine specialists at any of our four office locations: main campus, Hurst, Southlake, and Southwest Fort Worth.

Preparing for an appointment

All new patients should make every effort to bring copies of previously taken radiographs, MRI or CT scans. These images will be reviewed by the physician and possibly compared to new radiographs taken in the office during the visit.

In addition, patients should bring any existing bracing they have, especially if they feel it needs adjusting or replacing. This gives the physician a better understanding of the child’s needs. Bracing could include, ankle foot orthosis (AFOs), knee immobilizers, ankle supports, special shoes or inserts, wrist braces, slings and prosthetic devices.
