FAQs About Pediatric Hand & Upper Extremity Care

Do You Treat All Kids (Infant to Age 18)?

Yes. We also do prenatal consultations.

Do You Offer Second Opinion Consultations for Pediatric Patients?

Absolutely! Second-opinion pediatric consultations are a big part of what we do. We're also here for those times when things don't go as planned with previous treatments or surgeries from other providers. 

It's all about making things right and getting the best care for your child. That's where our expertise really shines—in fixing and improving the care needed to help your little one.

All of our doctors can handle routine pediatric hand and upper extremity issues and trauma cases, but Dr. Peck stands out when it comes to specialized care. She did additional training in pediatrics and congenital conditions, making her our go-to expert for these more complex needs.

Do You Collaborate With Other Providers in the Area?

In cases when our young patients need a bit more care, like multiple surgeries, we're big on collaboration and work hand-in-hand with other pediatric orthosurgeons in the area to make sure everything goes smoothly. We've got a great network of partners at St. Vincent, Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital, Riley Pediatric Orthopedics, and OrthoIndy.

Our team likes to focus on what's best for each child, ensuring they get the care they need in those trickier situations.

Dr. Peck is an amazing doctor who truly cares about her patients and goes out of her way to meet every need or concern you may have. She is hands down one of the best. Highly recommended!
