Fun in clinic!

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.


Dr. Paley has almost 30 years of experience in pediatric orthopedics and he is the most experienced limb lengthening and deformity correction surgeon in the United States as well as internationally. He has performed over 17,000 limb lengthening surgeries since 1986. Dr. Paley has an amazing track record of success with complex pediatric orthopedic cases. Our multidisciplinary team of surgeons, anesthesiologists, medical doctors, nurses, physician assistants, physical and occupational therapists, and orthopedic technologists are all dedicated to making this process safe, secure, and as streamlined as possible for your child.

Personalized Treatment

Dr. Paley understands that every patient is unique, and that every case requires a specific treatment plan. During the initial consultation, Dr. Paley will meet with you for over an hour, discussing each and every phase of treatment. During this time, Dr. Paley will present a comprehensive life plan, detailing treatment over many years, if necessary, in order to achieve the desired results.

Coordinated Concierge Care

At the Paley Institute we offer coordinated, concierge care throughout all stages of treatment. Our entire staff works in one building: the Kimmel Building, on the campus of St. Mary’s Medical Center. This allows our staff to communicate quickly and effectively, ensuring the highest level of care for each of our patients throughout each phase of their treatment.
