The pediatric department at UNC Orthopaedics is one of the strongest in the state with dedicated and experienced providers. Both Drs. Edmund Campion and Richard Henderson have been practicing in this field for more than 15 years. Continuity of care is point of emphasis, only a dedicated field-specialized nurse with a master’s in nursing and more than 20 years of pediatric orthopaedic experience completes the circle of care infants and children receive here. Our pediatric team treats a plethora of congenital and developmental disorders as well as sports and trauma injuries. Below are list of commonly treated disorders:

Congenital Disorders:

  • Clubfoot
  • Neuromuscular Disorders
  • Arthrogryposis (a severe form of clubfoot)
  • Spina Bifida
