A single fracture (broken bone) is common in growing children. However, multiple fractures can be the first sign of an underlying medical problem that is causing abnormal bone health. In addition, a variety of pediatric diseases may cause decreased bone strength and/or deformity, leaving children at an increased risk of fracture and disability throughout life. Our specialists in the Bone Health Program have extensive experience in caring for many of these disorders.
