As pediatric orthopaedic surgeons, we care for children from infancy to adulthood. Frequently, adolescents are simply grouped with the children, but they are, in fact, undergoing rapid physical, emotional, and social changes in preparation for their adult lives. The skeleton is maturing into its adult form, and, at some point, the pediatric operative techniques designed for open growth plates, thick periosteum, and tremendous healing and remodeling potential are no longer applicable. The 2020 POSNA Precourse supplement addresses the transition to adulthood and the gap between child and adult treatment, both in management of orthopaedic conditions and care in the clinic.
