Osteogenesis Imperfecta in Children

Orthopedic experts at Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone and NYU Langone Orthopedic Hospital 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.

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

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