General Orthopaedics and Fracture Care Clinic

Vanderbilt Children’s Fracture Clinic in Murfreesboro is here to treat your child's bone fracture injury quickly and conveniently.

Your pediatrician, urgent care or emergency room is often your first stop when your child fractures a bone. If you need to follow up with a pediatric orthopaedic specialist, we're here for you. You may bring your child directly to the Vanderbilt Children’s Fracture Clinic without a referral. However, we ask that you call our scheduling team in advance to discuss the severity of the injury. In many cases, we can offer a same- or next-day appointment.

Please bring your child’s X-ray images from the emergency room or urgent care if possible. If your child has not had X-rays, we provide on-site imaging.

Fracture care appointments are available Mondays between 12:30 p.m. and 5 p.m.

Conditions We Treat

  • Bone infections
  • Closed fractures
  • Complex fractures
  • Compression fractures
  • Dislocations
  • Fracture reduction
  • Gait abnormalities
