Orthopedic Research

Our breakthroughs transform treatments

We know that developing extensive knowledge and new methods are key to a child’s future. LuskinOIC is home to two world-class research centers, where our researchers focus on improving patient outcomes in our sub-specialties such as scoliosis, clubfoot, and fractures. They continue to uncover and develop new ways to treat children while setting them up for a fulfilling life.
