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 scoliosis, 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 Lerner Children’s Pavilion at HSS – for the specialized skill, expertise, and experience that only we can offer. 

The Lerner Children’s Pavilion at HSS consists of a team of specialty-trained pediatric orthopedic surgeons, rheumatologists, anesthesiologists, and pediatricians that attend to over 50,000 pediatric patient visits per year and is recognized as one of the few institutions with the skill and expertise to care for children living with complex and devastating bone and joint conditions. The Lerner Children’s Pavilion is now recognized as a top 10 hospital nationwide and is once again ranked the number one hospital in the New York tri-state region for Pediatric Orthopedics by U.S. News & World Report.

Funds from the Annual Pediatric Benefit will support ground-breaking research initiatives, access to medical care for disadvantaged families, and enhancements to the Child Life program to help make our patients feel at ease during their visit. Please share your support to help us create a better future for the children we serve.
