Introduction

Celebrate World Pediatric Bone and Joint Day on October 19 to recognize the importance of keeping bones healthy in children. This special day was created by The International Society for Child and Adolescent Orthopedic Surgery (ISCAOS) in 2019 with the mission to raise awareness about pediatric bone problems, specifically those that affect the musculoskeletal system. By learning more about how we can prevent these issues from occurring or minimize their effects, we can help ensure that our kids have strong bones throughout their lives!
