Paley Institute Center for Pediatric Orthopedics
Welcome to the Paley Institute Pediatric Orthopedics Center of Excellence!
At the Paley Institute, we treat a variety of complicated congenital and acquired orthopedic conditions in children. Some of the complex diagnoses we treat include:
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.
The Paley Institute is located on the campus of St. Mary’s Medical Center, home to the Palm Beach Children’s Hospital, the area’s only dedicated 24-hour pediatric emergency center. The Palm Beach Children's Hospital has a dedicated team of child life specialists who assist children and families during the hospitalization, helping to reduce stress and anxiety. The Paley Institute works closely with the hospital staff in order to ensure high-quality care throughout all stages of treatment.
All year round the Paley Institute hosts a variety of activities and events for the whole family. This is a great opportunity to relax, unwind, and meet fellow Paley patients and families. Events include a Paley 5k run, patient dinners, dance parties, bingo, and trips to local centers for bowling, baseball games, museums, and much more!
At the Paley Institute we are dedicated to personally guiding each patient through treatment. Our staff is committed to meeting each patient’s individual needs before, during, and after treatment. From preoperative planning, to the hospital stay, followed by physical therapy and post-operative care, our staff supports patients and their families. No detail is too small. We provide assistance with travel and living arrangements, transportation and educational alternatives. We also provide training in pin care and fixator and spica cast management.
