Research is an integral part of the activities of the Division of Pediatric Orthopaedic Surgery and the Center for Children. The Division and Center utilizes outcomes methods of assessment to care for your child. Outcome assessments and questionnaires are key research tools at the Center to help improve the treatment for pediatric orthopaedic conditions. These outcomes data drive the clinical research to help the Center provide innovative and world-class care for clubfoot, limb deformities, adolescent hip disorders, scoliosis, and neuromuscular disorders, like cerebral palsy.
As part of the NYU Langone Medical Center and the NYU School of Medicine, the Center partners with other healthcare scientists to study musculoskeletal disorders at the genetic and molecular level with a newly established Tissue Bank, one of the few in the nation.
Various grants and sources have funded our pediatric orthopaedic surgeons to publish peer-reviewed studies in the medical literature. Some of the granting agencies for our surgeons have included the Orthopaedic Research and Education Fund and the National Institutes of Health.
