The AAP, along with the Pediatric Orthopaedic Society of North America, has released a list of procedures and orthopedic tests that are often ordered but not always necessary for treating children with hip, foot and musculoskeletal conditions.
“There should always be a conversation between physician and patient on what procedures and tests are really necessary,” Brian Shaw, MD, FAAP, FAAOS, a member of the AAP Section on Orthopaedics, said in a press release.
