The Differences Between

a Child’s & Adult’s Knee Injury

Kids and adults can both injure their knees doing the same things. Skiing accidents, overuse with sports, trips and falls. But kids’ bones are still developing well into their late teens, which can make treatment more risky. Dr. Tom Miller sits down with Dr. Stephen Aoki, professor of Orthopaedics surgery at the U, to talk about the key differences when treating pediatric knee injuries and how the pathology, treatment and recovery is different than with an adult.
