UCLA Alliance

In 1998, two of the most prestigious medical institutions in Southern California, Luskin Orthopaedic Institute for Children and UCLA, forged a far-reaching alliance to broaden the scope of both organizations – bringing new and expanded programs for patient care, research and education in musculoskeletal disorders to LA and beyond.

While Santa Monica-UCLA Medical Center and LuskinOIC may be the most visible component of the alliance with UCLA, it has provided enhanced opportunities for research and education. Scientists and clinicians work together in close proximity, stimulating the cross-fertilization of theories, knowledge and experience that generates valuable new ideas and therapies, moving breakthroughs from bench to bedside quickly and safely.

The alliance between UCLA and LuskinOIC creates a platform for unparalleled contributions to patient care and scientific discovery in orthopaedic surgery and musculoskeletal medicine.

The Santa Monica-UCLA Medical Center and Orthopaedic Hospital, LuskinOIC on the downtown campus, the Orthopaedic Medical Center on the UCLA Westwood campus, and the Orthopaedic Hospital/UCLA Residency Program combined have the capacity to lead advancements in musculoskeletal patient care, research and education worldwide.
