Whether on the playground or on the ball field, children are susceptible to bone injury. When it comes to fast-growing bones, there’s no time to lose. Early diagnosis and the right treatment are of utmost importance for a child’s long-term health and mobility. For those children with some of the most debilitating musculoskeletal conditions, such as cerebral palsy, brittle bone disease, and juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, treatment by specialists who are the best in the world makes all the difference. That is why so many parents entrust the care of their children to the Alfred & Norma Lerner Children’s Pavilion at HSS – for the specialized skill, expertise, and experience that only we can offer.
As the nation’s number one orthopedic hospital, HSS has been helping kids get safely back in the game of life for more than 150 years. Today, we continue to be dedicated to the treatment and rehabilitation of children, with over 21,000 pediatric patient visits per year. HSS is proud to provide all-star care for athletes in the Big Leagues and the Little Leagues, serving as the Official Hospital of the Brooklyn Nets, New York Giants, New York Knicks, and New York Mets, and overseeing care for athletes in virtually every sport and at every level of play.
Our vision at HSS is to create a better future for every child who needs us through unparalleled care and research. Every day, our scientists are conducting groundbreaking orthopedic research that is helping to dramatically improve surgery, making procedures more accurate and less invasive for children. Our researchers are discovering and developing innovative therapies and promising new treatments, with the goal of one day ridding the world of these disabling conditions.
Please join us at this year’s Big Apple Circus Benefit – the Hospital’s only annual benefit for pediatrics – to help us create a better future for the children we serve. If you are unable to attend, there are many other ways you can support the event, including sponsoring programs such as “Movie Nights” at the Pavilion, for children and families staying overnight at the Hospital, or supporting the Hospital’s pioneering research initiatives.
