For over 95 years Shriners Children’s Twin Cities has served our mission specializing in one thing; pediatric orthopaedics. Our board-certified surgeons and staff provide high-quality medical care to all children, regardless of a family’s ability to pay. Our clinic specializes in treating children with orthopaedic conditions in an environment designed to put children at ease. We provide an intimate, family-centered environment with the following services:

  • ·       Physician Visits: Our specialists work together to meet each child’s individual needs through expert evaluation and treatment. Every child is evaluated by a team of professionals who coordinate the child’s treatment, with a goal to restore each child physically, emotionally and socially.
  • ·       Radiology: The Radiology Department at Shriners Children’s Twin Cities helps assess pathology, extent of deformity or injury and physical changes over time. We strive to keep radiation doses as low as possible during X-rays by tailoring technical factors to the appropriate age and size of our patients as well as using our EOS machine, which delivers a radiation dose up to nine times less than a conventional radiography x-ray.
  • ·       Rehabilitation: Rehabilitation services at Shriners Children’s are prescribed by a physician or physician assistant and provided by our physical therapy and occupational therapy staff. Our occupational therapy concentrates on modifying environment and providing specialized equipment to promote greater independence whereas our physical therapy is an important component helping to address gross motor delays and injuries.
  • ·       Orthotics and Prosthetics: Pediatric Orthotics and Prosthetics Services (POPS) located at Shriners Children’s offers a full range of orthotic and prosthetic services including upper and lower extremity prosthetic care, scoliosis bracing, and pediatric orthotic services.
  • ·       Child Life: Our child life department is staffed by certified therapeutic recreation specialists who provide services to both patients and their families to reduce the stress associated with health care. Our specialists teach patients coping skills through offering opportunities to play, learn and interact with others in a safe environment. They also offer camps and activities to help meet patient’s social and emotional needs.
