The Orthopedics Institute at Children’s Colorado is consistently ranked among the top 10 pediatric orthopedic programs in the nation by U.S. News and World Report. We were one of six children’s hospitals in the U.S. to be recognized in 2015 on the 125 Hospitals with Great Orthopedic Programs list by Becker’s Hospital Review. This recognition is given to programs conducting leading research and providing outstanding patient care.
These acknowledgements signify our achievement in becoming one of the only truly integrated pediatric orthopedics, orthopedic surgery and rehabilitation medicine programs in the country. This is important because treating orthopedic conditions requires collaboration and care from all types of pediatric movement specialists.
We see patients with all types of orthopedic conditions, from broken bones and concussions to complex conditions like cerebral palsy. Our team delivers family-centered care through more than 12 specialized programs and five clinics, at several locations throughout our region.
Every physician, surgeon, rehabilitation specialist and nurse on our team is specially trained and has experience caring for young patients from infancy to young adulthood. This means we create age-appropriate solutions that will complement, and change with, your child’s developmental stage. Special resources, like the Center for Gait and Movement Analysis, also mean we’re able to offer different therapies and treatments than other children’s hospitals.
At Children’s Colorado, we are entirely focused on helping your child be his or her best, and we have been for years. Here are some highlights from the Orthopedics Institute’s history:
