The Pediatric Orthopedics Clinic is staffed by fellowship-trained pediatric orthopedic surgeons and experienced nursing and allied health professionals. The clinic specializes in the treatment of general pediatric orthopedic conditions including: clubfoot, hip dysplasia, limb deformity, and others. The clinic will also accept referrals for more specialized pediatric orthopedic conditions including: neuromuscular disorders and spinal deformities.

The Sidra Outpatient Clinic is currently accepting referral based patients from Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC), Primary Health Care Corporation and the QF Primary Health Care Center. While consultations with the Sidra surgical team are based out of the Sidra Outpatient Clinic, all surgical procedures and operations are currently being conducted at HMC hospitals.
