Arthrogryposis in Children

Doctors at Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone are experts in diagnosing and treating children with arthrogryposis. This condition causes contractures—a permanent tightening, shortening, and flexing or fixation of joints and muscles.

VIDEO: Our experts care for children with everyday injuries and those who need long-term treatment for chronic musculoskeletal conditions.

Our orthopedic surgeons, physical and occupational therapists, neurologists, plastic surgeons, geneticists, and psychologists work as a team to develop a care plan for improving mobility, function, and strength tailored to each child. By working together they can provide your child with the very best care, while being mindful of your treatment preferences.
