Discover The Orthopedic Center at Boston Children's Hospital
Whether your child has a broken arm, sports-related injury or the most complex spine condition, Boston Children's Hospital's Orthopedic Center is committed to providing comprehensive and compassionate care.
Established in 1903, we are one of the world’s most experienced pediatric orthopedic centers, and with thirteen specialty clinics, we are the largest in the U.S. We are also one of the busiest. Each year, our orthopedic team attends to more than 96,000 patient visits and performs over 6,000 surgeries, which represents almost one quarter of all surgeries performed by Boston Children’s departments. In 2012, we were ranked in the top three in the category of pediatric orthopedics by U.S. News & World Report.
Our center offers the full spectrum of care for orthopedic conditions, developmental disorders, as well as congenital, neuromuscular and post-traumatic problems of the musculoskeletal system. We also offer physical and occupational medicine, as well as orthotic and prosthetic devices.
Yet, while our treatments and innovations have greatly evolved over the past century, our philosophy remains the same—to relentlessly provide the best orthopedic care and patient service possible in order to improve the quality of life for our patients.
