Surgical treatment of fractures in a pediatric population requires a substantially different approach from that in the adult population. The surgeon must focus on the dynamic properties of the immature skeleton, balancing the potential for further growth with the need to stably fix the fracture. JBJS Essential Surgical Techniques, in collaboration with Children’s ORthopaedic Trauma and Infection Consortium for Evidence-based Study (CORTICES), proudly presents a digital collection of articles on the treatment of common and enigmatic fractures in children. These techniques include both longstanding and cutting-edge procedures that can be utilized by the on-call physician, whether they are a pediatric orthopedist or a generalist, to improve care in this important population.
