Who we are

Our mission is to take care of children up to age 18 who have any orthopedic injury or condition.

Our history

The Montreal Children’s Hospital Orthopedic Surgery Department was founded in the early 1960s. It has always worked in close collaboration with The Shriners Hospital for Children, which opened its doors in 1921. Pediatric orthopedic surgery is a subspecialty which requires post-residency training (fellowship) for at least two years. 

Our team

The Montreal Children’s Hospital orthopedic team is made up of seven orthopedic surgeons (six full-time and one half-time). All of our surgeons are fully trained in dealing with trauma cases and we have sub-specialties in complex spine deformities, limb deformities, neuromuscular deformities and adolescent hip diseases. Our team also includes two full-time medical secretaries, one clinical secretary and one cast technician. We collaborate very closely with The Shriners Hospital and all orthopedic surgeons work at both hospitals.

Where the care happens

All children with traumatic injuries or complex spine deformities requiring post-operative monitoring in the intensive care unit are seen at and undergo surgery at the Montreal Children’s Hospital. All other orthopedic diseases and deformities are taken care of at the ShrinersHospital for Children.

At the new MCH, the ShrinersHospital will be physically linked to The Montreal Children's Hospital and we expect most pediatric orthopedics to be done at the Shriners. However because of the link all MCH patients will have access to pediatric orthopedic care and follow-up.

Our services

Conditions which are treated at the MCH and ShrinersHospital include the following:

  • All musculoskeletal injuries (including sports injuries)
  • All spine deformities (neuromuscular, congenital and idiopathic scoliosis; kyphosis)
