Major areas of focus for the CERC include:

   •    Upper extremity disorders
   •    Spinal disorders
   •    Brachial plexus birth palsy

Ongoing laboratory studies include:

   •    Basic science studies
   •    Biomechanical/instrumentation studies

We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
