Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children's (TSRHC) Fracture Clinic is located in our North Campus and specializes in the diagnosis, management and treatment of new fractures. Fracture is the medical term for a broken bone. Children and teenagers are not just small adults. Their growing bones have special needs and require careful attention to avoid potential complications. We are experts in evaluating growing bones and knowing how they will respond to injuries.
The dedicated multi-disciplinary team includes pediatric orthopedic surgeons, advanced practice providers, physical therapists, orthopedic cast technicians, registered nurses, child life specialists and medical assistants.

Children and adolescents are still growing. That’s what makes pediatric orthopedics different from adult orthopedics. We are experts at knowing appropriate treatment options for each child based on his or her age, injury, growth plates, activity level and other factors. This comprehensive approach leads to better outcomes.
Common conditions we treat in the Fracture Clinic:
- Follow-up care for fractures diagnosed by pediatricians, emergency rooms and urgent care centers.
- Injuries that occur during free play and when using recreational equipment including trampolines, bicycles, skateboards, and scooters.
- Injuries from falls from low heights such as playground equipment or a bed.
- Fractures to growth plates from sudden injuries.
Our Sports Medicine Center evaluates and treats sports-related injuries, please visit our sports section to learn more.

Follow-up for Fractures
Children with a diagnosed fracture (broken bone) AND images of x-rays on a disc can also be seen, without an appointment, during our walk-in hours. These patients must:
- Arrive at our North Campus between 7:30 am and 9:30 am (Monday – Friday, excluding major holidays).
- Bring copies of images on a disc or standard x-ray films. Without copies of images, the visit may be scheduled for another time to allow more time to take x-rays.
