Our Caregiver Team

Children are our specialty.

Our four physicians—Joseph Bellflower, M.D., William Didelot, M.D., Kosmas Kayes, M.D., and Jonathan Wilhite, M.D.—are each board-certified and fellowship-trained in pediatric orthopedics. That means, in addition to four years in medical school and a five-year residency in orthopedic surgery, each of our physicians has additional training in the treatment of pediatric orthopedic disorders and injuries in children.
