Idaho Falls Community Hospital has teamed up with Primary Children’s and the University of Utah’s Orthopedic Division to offer pediatric orthopedic services to our community.
Children’s bodies are constantly growing, so their joints, muscles and bones need special care. Our Orthopedic specialist understands that children have unique orthopedic needs, and base their treatment off their personal growth and development. They are able to treat the most basic orthopedic problems to the most complex conditions. Our pediatric specialist is proud to provide care in a child-centered environment to help put our patients and their families at ease.

Before Your First Visit
Our team is here to make your visit with us as comfortable as possible. If we can answer any questions before you arrive, please give us a call at 208-528-1455.
