Every child's needs are different. We offer a variety of other specialty clinics daily to help evaluate and create a treatment plan for each child.

For more information or to schedule an appointment for any of the clinics listed below, please call 215-430-4000.

Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita Clinic

Our medical team specializes in providing comprehensive, ongoing care and management for the rare orthopedic condition arthrogryposis multiplex congenita (AMC). Our team utilizes both non-operative and operative options to help our patients with AMC improve range of motion and quality of life.

Brachial Plexus Clinic

The brachial plexus and peripheral nerve is a group of nerves that originate at the spinal cord in the neck and travel down the arm. These nerves control the muscles of the shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand, and provide feeling in the arm. A common misconception is that brachial plexus and peripheral nerve injuries resolve on their own. Early intervention makes a big difference.

The brachial plexus and peripheral nerve clinic is unique, as we have several upper extremity specialists available to collaborate on the best treatment plan for each child and their family. In addition to orthopedic hand and upper extremity specialists, occupational therapy, orthotics and social work are also available at the clinic.

Cerebral Palsy Clinic

Pediatric orthopedists, therapists and orthotists work together with each patient and their family to prescribe a customized care plan for children with cerebral palsy. Treatment options may include referrals to our tone management clinic, botulinum toxin injections, bracing, physical, occupational and speech therapy, a visit to the motion analysis center and a customized plan involving surgery when necessary to correct contractures and bony alignment. We also specialize in spasticity and tone management for patients who may be in need of this type of care. A multidisciplinary team works collaboratively to improve each patient’s range of motion, motor function and comfort.

Chest Wall Clinic

Shriners Children's Philadelphia specializes in treating chest wall malformations of all degrees. All treatment decisions are guided by specialists who consider minimally-invasive options for each child. All care is delivered under one roof, where the medical team works collaboratively to ensure that children benefit from the finest, most advanced pediatric care. Chest wall conditions treated include pectus excavatum (sunken chest), pectus carinatum (raised chest) and many others. Services available at the clinic include pediatric orthopedic chest wall specialists, social work, radiology and orthotics.

Cleft Lip and Palate Clinic

Shriners Children’s Philadelphia offers a full team of specialists for cleft lip and cleft palate care for children. The multidisciplinary team includes plastic surgeons and speech pathologists who work together in coordinated appointments to repair your child’s cleft lip and palate, and address other related needs and concerns. Our team focuses exclusively on children and understands how growth and development affect the outcomes of a child’s appearance and function.

In addition to pediatric specialists dedicated to cleft lip and palate care, Shriners Children’s Philadelphia offers rehabilitation services on-site. We specialize in pediatric therapy services for children with cleft/craniofacial conditions, including speech therapy. Our family-centered approach ensures that both the patient and family are included in establishing a plan of care that allows the patient to achieve greater independence and overall quality of life.

Limb Clinic

In this highly-specialized area of care, physicians treat a variety of pediatric limb deficiencies. At Shriners Children's Philadelphia, we believe in collaborating with families to build personalized treatment plans tailored to each child's needs. We take into consideration the child’s age, the severity of the discrepancy and the child’s ability to participate in the treatment plan.

Treatment options may include limb lengthening, physical therapy, occupational therapy and, in some cases, amputation. Your child may also be seen by our Shriners Children’s Pediatric Orthotics and Prosthetic Services department, which designs, fits and manufactures orthotics and prosthetics for children. These devices include shoe inserts, braces, and when needed, artificial limbs.
