As you may have figured out by now my readers, bub has special needs. I have known things were not right with him since he was born and have struggled to find many doctors, therapies and such for his different needs. I believe he has only been out of some kind of therapy for 6 months of his life!
When he broke his growth plate in his ankle I was not sure what kind of doctor I would need for him. I searched high and low as well as asking friends for recommendations for a doctor that understood special needs and had a bed side manner for kids too. Once we met his orthopedic specialist I knew that bub was in good hands. He took care of bubs ankle as well as ensured that other things in the orthopedic realm were taken care of, I am glad I researched and found bubs doctor!
As a parent, I know looking for a specialized doctor that your child will like is important. Like I said before I asked friends and family them researched them online. Ultimately bubs doctor was through Children’s Hospital but there are other great doctors out there. It is what is best for your child’s needs that is of utmost importance then who your insurance or you can afford if your insurance does not cover a particular doctor.
For those who live in or can travel to New York City there is the Hospital for Special Surgery. They are a world leader in orthopedics, rheumatology and rehabilitation needs. HSS recently opened the CA Technologies Rehabilitation Center at the Children’s Pavilion which provides comprehensive, individualized rehabilitation for both in and out patients from birth to 21 years of age. Its multidisciplinary staff includes physical and occupational therapists as well as speech and language pathologists.

A small donation to a charity of my choice was made in my name as a thank you for participating. You should consult with your physician or other health care provider before beginning any rehabilitation/therapy, sports training or exercise program.***
