We are seeking a surgeon interested in general pediatric orthopaedics (including spine) as well as a surgeon with an interest in neuromuscular/hip/limb deformity. We are very willing to consider applicants with other subspecialty interests. There is strong potential for candidates to assume leadership roles in the future.
Our growing division consists of two Pediatric Orthopaedic surgeons, two Advanced Practice Practitioners, a Nurse Coordinator, and a skilled team of ancillary staff.

Our extensive referral base includes five primary counties in central Pennsylvania, as well as referrals from the extended central Pennsylvania region.
Our children's hospital is also immediately adjacent to Milton S. Hershey Medical Center, the region's tertiary care facility and adult trauma center. Potential candidates would join a large, nationally-acclaimed academic practice with strong subspecialty programs in all aspects of orthopaedic care. Our department supports an ACGME-accredited residency program as well as fellowships in foot and ankle, trauma, sports medicine, and primary care sports medicine. Pennsylvania State University, one of the top research institutions in the world, offers abundant opportunity for academic and research pursuits.
