The article presents a study on urban pediatric orthopedic practices. It states that an operating-room computerized database was used for urban pediatric orthopedic practices identification which contains recorded surgical cases. The results shows that trauma surgery approaches 50% of urban pediatric orthopedic practices' surgical workload and 22.1% out of the 1, 605 anesthetic events recorded for 2006 and 2007 involved multiple and bilateral surgeries.
