Pediatric Orthopaedic Center is the only practice north of Boston who dedicates its entire practice specializing in the diagnosis, non-surgical, and surgical treatment of all types of bone, joint, and muscle disorders in children and adolescents. It is our mission to provide a diagnosis and treatment plan in a timely fashion and in the best environment.
If you need a prescription refill between visits, please call us during business hours for prescriptions that have been ordered by us. Please allow 48 hours for all prescription refills. When calling for a refill, please provide the receptionist with your name and date of birth, the name of your prescription, pharmacy name and phone number, and the prescribing physician.
Please contact your primary care physician’s office for any prescriptions normally prescribed by him/her. Please be aware that if you have not been seen or treated by a Pediatric Orthopaedic Services provider, we are unable to fill any prescriptions.
Pre-registering for appointments allows us to have your paperwork waiting for you when you arrive. Please call EMMC Pre-Registration Hotline toll-free at 1-888-973-8900 or, if your call is local, 973-8900. Representatives are available Monday through Friday 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. and Saturday 8:30 a.m.-2:00 p.m. You can leave a message after hours and we will call you back.

Our practice is dedicated to your privacy and confidentiality. By law, we are only able to speak to the patient, patient’s parents (if a minor), or medical power of attorney unless an authorization to release health care information form has been completed.
Please allow 7-10 business days for completion of your paperwork to be filled out by a provider. Forms and paperwork will be sent to Health Information Services unless mailed directly to you.
