Nobody knows pediatric orthopaedics like Shriners Hospitals for Children® — Twin Cities. For 93 years, a multi-disciplinary team of pediatricians, orthotists, prosthetists, and therapists have been collaborating with pediatric orthopaedic surgeons to provide a team approach to care.
Our team specializes in the care of most conditions of the bones, muscles, or joints including: cerebral palsy, spina bifida, limb deficiencies, hip or spine disorders, and congenital deformities of the feet or hands. Specialty clinics are staffed by fellowship trained pediatric orthopaedic surgeons with sub specialty training and because of our highly specialized approach to care, pediatric orthopaedic conditions considered rare at a mainstream healthcare facilities are areas of expertise at Shriners Hospitals for Children.
In addition to the complex congenital orthopaedic conditions, we are leaders in pediatric fracture reduction/re-alignment and treatment for sports injuries.
What makes Shriners unique is that the world-class medical care expands far beyond the hospital walls. We also meet social and emotional needs providing free camp programming for patients who are transitioning to adulthood or have an interest in performing arts, swimming, or wheelchair sports.
We take pride in always putting the patient first and so regardless of insurance coverage limitations or ability to pay, Shriners Hospitals for Children will always provide best in class surgery, radiology, rehabilitation, orthotics, and prosthetics services.
