The Pediatric Orthopedic Society of North America
The Pediatric Orthopaedic Society of North America (POSNA) is a group of professionals comprised mostly of pediatric orthopaedic surgeons. We are board certified in orthopaedic surgery and have participated in additional training to become specialized in the care of children’s musculoskeletal health and our practice reflects this dedication. We, as a group, strive to become the authoritative source on such care through appropriate research that will lead to the best evidence-based patient care. On this page you will find more information about our society and a way to contact us with questions.
