Preface
The diagnostic and therapeutic approach of the Pediatric Orthopedic of the 21st century has been in constant change and development. The freedom of thought given by the scientific evidence has allowed and promoted this constant transformation. There is a marked tendency to follow a non-invasive approach for the treatment of young patients and surgical reconstruction in adolescents. The emphasis of the treatment of several pathologies with high incidence rates is not placed any longer on treating the underlying etiology; thus stressing the need of an devising an effective plan for the diagnosis and treatment. This book is the result of a research carried out at the Department of Orthopedic and Traumatology at the Garrahan Hospital in Buenos Aires, Argentina. We have been working on the follow-up of different pathologies described by several authors and compiled 81 protocols of different orthopedic pathologies in childhood.
