"I enjoy learning about my patient's orthopedic needs and creating the optimal treatment plan to obtain the greatest results possible for healing."

Specialty: Pediatric Orthopedics
Dr. Susan Griffith specializes in pediatric orthopedics. Certified by the American Osteopathic Board of Orthopedic Surgery, she has trained extensively in her field and holds a master’s degree in biomedical sciences from the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, where she also earned her doctorate in osteopathic medicine.
She received her undergraduate degree from LaSalle University, completed her internship at Frankford Hospital, and successfully undertook her residency at Frankford Hospital, Nemours A. I. duPont Hospital for Children, Frankford Hospital and Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. Dr. Griffith also completed a prestigious fellowship in pediatric orthopedics at two Philadelphia institutions: Shriner’s Hospital for Children and St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children.
Dr. Griffith holds professional membership in a number of organizations including the American Osteopathic Association, the Female Orthopedic Group, and the American Osteopathic Academy of Orthopedics, where she served as chairman of pediatric orthopedics in 2006 and was honored with the American Osteopathic Academy of Orthopedics Fellowship Award in 2007. She is also a junior examiner for the part III AOBOS Board exams and is on the AOAO editorial subcommittee. Additionally, Dr. Griffith has presented at numerous professional meetings and symposiums.

After spending 11 years at Doylestown Orthopedic Specialists, Dr. Griffith joined Bucks County Orthopedic Specialists in 2015 where she continues to practice her philosophy of care in treating the “whole patient.”
"I enjoy learning about my patient's orthopedic needs and creating the optimal treatment plan to obtain the greatest results possible for healing,” says Dr. Griffith. “This is not so easy, as many factors can present obstacles to this plan of care, such as age of patient, severity of condition, sporting activity schedules, and family vacation plans/obligations. Those challenges, I find, are the art of medicine."
In her spare time, Dr. Griffith enjoys running and competing in triathlons. She is also the former president and coach of Buckingham United travel soccer.
