Pioneers in Orthopedic Care
Dr. Rieger was the first division chief of Pediatric Orthopedics at Morristown Medical Center, was the first doctor in New Jersey to be certified in the Ponseti technique for non-operative clubfoot treatment and performed the first endoscopic spine surgery in New Jersey. The practice was the first in the state to perform hip ultrasound to evaluate hip dysplasia. The physicians at The Pediatric Orthopedic Center take pride in providing cutting-edge care and treating their patients as their own children.
