Paley Pediatric Orthopedics

The Paley Institute is dedicated to supporting all of our patients and families throughout treatment. We understand that receiving treatment at the Paley Institute can be a major life decision. Many families make geographic, family, financial, and emotional sacrifices to travel here for treatment. We provide a variety of resources to assist our patients and their families as they embark on their treatment journey. The goal is to supply patients and families with information regarding care at the Paley Institute. This will not only empower the patient and their family but will give them the necessary information and support to do all that is needed to reach the optimum goal.
