The Pediatric Orthopaedics team at TOC always strives to makes a difference in the lives of our youngest patients while bringing peace of mind to their families. Over the years, this team has supported thousands of local families through the diagnosis and treatment of their child’s specific health challenges. Their goal is to improve the patient’s quality of life by compassionately caring for their health issue. We treat orthopaedic issues specific to the growing bones of a child from infancy to adolescents such as growth plate injuries, sports injuries, fractures, clubfoot deformity, hip dysplasia, scoliosis, cerebral palsy, spina bifida, and limb length discrepancy.
A combined 66 years of experience
The heart of this dedicated team is made up of two fellowship trained Pediatric Orthopaedic Surgeons, Dr. Steven L. Buckley and Dr. Michael G. Lawley; and two dedicated Nurse Practitioners, Elizabeth Schwarze and Jennifer Sharp. Together they offer the only specialized pediatric orthopaedic services within 100 miles, at three north Alabama TOC locations: Huntsville, Madison & Athens. TOC is so proud of this team and the quality pediatric orthopaedic treatment they provide for our young patients.
A community focus
The entire TOC Pediatric Team is committed to our community. When they are not serving the needs of TOC patients, all of the team members volunteer their skills with Children’s Rehabilitation Service, a statewide organization that coordinates various providers, who together build a brighter future for disabled youth and their families.
