In addition to offering a full range of pediatric orthopedic care for children, Dr. Jacks has special interests in cerebral palsy and neuromuscular diseases; congenital conditions, such as dislocated hip, clubfoot, arthrogryposis and other malformations; and pediatric trauma. Dr. Jacks’ mission is focused on helping children reach maximum function possible, regardless of the obstacles they face.

Dr. Jacks uses a team approach to caring for patients with complex orthopedic conditions. Physicians and therapists work together and learn from one another, as well as from the patient, while providing cohesive, integrated care in as few patient visits as possible.

Dr. Jacks is the medical director and avid supporter of the Kids Center for Pediatric Therapies in Louisville, and provides consultative services through the Muscular Dystrophy Association. To reach as many children in need of care as possible, Dr. Jacks and her partners also provide services through the Kentucky Commission for Children with Special Health Care Needs.

Away from the office Dr. Jacks spends as much time as she can with her husband and son. They enjoy sports, outdoor activities and traveling in their RV. They are avid football fans and like to tailgate and watch U of L games at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium, as well as travel to other teams’ games throughout the season. Although football is her favorite, Jacks and her family also enjoy other sports, such as NASCAR.

There is only one place in Louisville where children can get specific treatment for their orthopedic needs. Kosair Children's Hospital and the new Kosair Children's Medical Center Brownsboro have the only fellowship trained pediatric orthopedic specialists in our community. They treat a variety of needs that affect growing bones and muscles from sprains and fractures to birth defects, bone diseases, scoliosis, tumors and other disorders. These specialists provide comprehensive orthopedic care for infants, children and teenagers in an environment that's "just for kids." In this Get Healthy segment, I'll introduce you to Laura Jacks, M.D. who is a pediatric orthopedic surgeon.
