Always seeking better ways to help children
When you invest with the Shriners Hospitals for Children–Canada, we transform it into leading
edge expertise and innovation. Donations like yours resulted in the purchase of the EOS
system, enabling doctors to get a three-dimensional view of a child’s spinal development.
improved view leads to clear and concise surgical interventions, resulting in less trauma
faster healing. At the same time the Nobel Prize winning technology only uses one-tenth of
amount of radiation. An important factor considering that many of these children require
multiple X-rays before and for years after treatment.
At Shriners Hospitals for Children–Canada, it’s not about doing things differently, but about
always seeking to do them better. Whether it’s straightening a scoliosis patient’s spine
less invasive surgical technique or using a Taylor Spatial Frame to help grow new bone
there’s always something new to be learned.
Because of its ongoing mission to provide the best possible care, children from across
Canada, the U.S. and around the world have benefited from the hospital's ground-breaking
research and innovative treatments, both in Montreal and in their own communities. That
drive for continual excellence has attracted many of the best and brightest experts in the
fields of pediatric medicine – doctors, researchers, surgeons anesthetists. All united in
the common mission of providing the best possible care for children and their families.
