At Nemours Children's, we're proud to offer one of the largest, most respected pediatric orthopedics practices in the United States — and the world. We're international leaders in pediatric orthopedic research and medical care, and have been throughout our long history of advancing orthopedic care and research. In 1940, we opened the Alfred I. duPont Institute, a pediatric orthopedic hospital in Wilmington, Del.

Under the direction of Alfred R. Shands, MD, the first medical director, the hospital quickly became world renowned for clinical care and research in pediatric orthopedics.
