The Orthopedic Center at Nemours Children’s Hospital, Delaware stands out in the orthopedic field.
We see more kids, for more complex orthopedic problems, than nearly any other children’s health system. We’re an international destination for skeletal dysplasia, cerebral palsy, osteogenesis imperfecta and spine conditions such as scoliosis.
We’re one of the oldest programs of our kind. We’ve been changing the lives of children from around the world since 1940. Our legacy of excellence continues to this day. Year after year, we’re ranked among the very best in the nation.
As a recognized leader in orthopedic care and research, we bring both hope and help to kids and families who need it most.
“It wasn’t just a broken arm. We’re dealing with his spinal cord,” said Eddie’s father. “So we wanted the best of the best.”
We’re one of the largest pediatric orthopedic centers in the country. Count on us for world-class specialists, top-notch facilities and advanced research.
