Orthopedics Care at Its Best

Nemours is the top children’s health system for several orthopedic conditions. Families come from all over the world to get care for skeletal dysplasia (dwarfism), cerebral palsy and complex spine conditions.

We’ve been treating kids for orthopedic conditions since 1940, and our roots as an orthopedic hospital shine through in all that we do. We’re heavily involved in research and clinical trials. This means we offer the latest treatments. We also have several Centers of Excellence.

Our pediatric orthopedic doctors see thousands of kids every year. From newborns to teenage athletes, we help restore function, improve quality of life and prevent injury. We help kids get back to being kids.
