Problems affecting bones, joints, and muscles can be frightening for you and your child. At Allegheny Health Network (AHN), our friendly physicians and staff put you both at ease.
Here you’ll find nationally recognized experts and a modern facility designed with kids’ unique needs in mind. We treat pediatric orthopaedic injuries and repair congenital (present at birth) conditions so your child can get back to doing what kids do.
The AHN Pediatric Orthopaedic Institute brings together all the physicians, tests, and treatments your child needs in one location. We combine compassionate care with the technologies that have been proven safe and effective for young patients.
Our specialty centers of care:
Child’s play doesn’t come easy when an orthopaedic condition causes pain or makes it difficult to move. At AHN, our physicians specialize in nonsurgical and surgical treatments that help your child achieve the highest level of functioning.

Highlights of our unique approach:
The POI’s behavioral health care team aims to provide patients and families an ideal approach to health care all under one roof. Our team is well equipped to address patients with episodic stressors, behavioral difficulties that impact patient treatment and health, as well as mild-to-moderate mental health difficulties. Our blended care model provides you with the most effective approach to integrated care. For example, when treating physical issues like broken bones and other conditions in children and teens, it’s important to support emotional health too. That’s why we have behavioral health services available, right in our office.
Our experts address the feelings that come up when children have unfamiliar medical procedures and limitations during recovery. We help kids cope with the emotional side of chronic conditions, sitting out from sports, wearing a cast, isolation from friends, or the lingering effects of a concussion.
