What Sets Us Apart

Orthopaedic experts at NYU Langone’s Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital and the Hospital for Joint Diseases are experienced in distinguishing between everyday bone fractures and osteogenesis imperfecta, a lifelong genetic condition that weakens bones and makes them more susceptible to fractures.

Our orthopaedists collaborate with a team of pediatricians, genetic counselors, endocrinologists, radiologists, dentists, hearing specialists, and physical and occupational therapists at NYU Langone to address all aspects of this condition.

Treatment at NYU Langone

For some children, surgery is required to repair broken bones or correct problems caused by repeated fractures. NYU Langone specialists aim to help children with osteogenesis imperfecta function safely during physical activity and improve their quality of life as they continue to grow.
