Welcome to
Children First Orthopedics

Dr. Frank J. Liggio is a Board Certified Pediatric Orthopedic Surgeon, based in Millburn, New Jersey, at the Pediatric Orthopedic and Spine Center. Dr. Liggio has been in practice since 1999 and has been located in Millburn since 2003.

The mission for Dr. Liggio and his staff is to make sure that every family that comes into the office has a great experience. This starts with making children and their families comfortable in the waiting room, keeping wait times short, and providing excellent care. We make this possible by having a dedicated staff using state of the art office technologies such as electronic medical records and digital x-rays and most importantly by making the well being of your child our highest priority.

Dr. Liggio will be the only provider that will examine and treat your child and that personal touch can make a big difference. This makes communication of the medical issues with the patient, the patient’s family, and the patient’s pediatrician more effective and we believe improves care.
