Advancing Care Through Research and Innovation

Expanding Our Expertise Through Partnerships
Our team collaborates with the University of Illinois Hospital & Health Sciences System in an effort to strengthen our clinical expertise and extend care to more children. We also provide training for UI Health’s orthopedic residents and residents from other leading academic medical centers in the Chicagoland area.
Our Motion Analysis Center
Our hospital has a motion analysis center that uses data to determine the most effective care option for children with orthopedic conditions. Our team in the motion analysis center works with medical and research specialists from the NIH-sponsored Bone Brittle Disorders Consortium (BBD), the Osteogenesis Imperfecta Foundation (OIF) and the Orthopaedic and Rehabilitation Engineering Center (OREC). These partnerships provide valuable expertise and are key to our success in continually developing new technologies and innovations for pediatric orthopedic conditions.
