Norton Children s Orthopedics of Louisville, affiliated with the UofL School of Medicine, is seeking a board-certified or board-eligible pediatric orthopedic surgeon with specialty interest in neuromuscular issues to join its growing practice. The group consists of six surgeons, one non-op physician and six (soon to be 7 or 8) advanced practice providers. The group also has one non-op fellowship and at least two orthopedic residents and frequent pediatrics or sports medicine rotators.

Norton Children s Orthopedics of Louisville is a well-established and growing practice with a large patient base and strong referral patterns. The group started in 1997 with a single surgeon and is now a thriving practice under management of Norton Healthcare. In this setting, a surgeon can engage in patient care and focus on building the practices she/he desires without the stress of direct practice management. The group operates in both Norton Children s Medical Center and Norton Children s Hospital. Norton Children s Hospital, located in downtown Louisville, is the area s only level I pediatric trauma center and only dedicated pediatric full-service hospital in the state. The group is very busy with full elective OR schedules and increasing wait times for new patient appointments.
