Expertise & Innovation

Groundbreaking discoveries and innovative treatments are all in a day’s work at the Shriners Hospitals for Children®–Canada. Thanks to gifts like yours, this culture of innovation will undoubtedly lead to revolutionary new treatments for children’s bone disorders.

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 imaging system, enabling doctors to get a three-dimensional view of a child’s spinal development. That improved view leads to clear and concise surgical interventions, resulting in less trauma and faster healing. At the same time the Nobel Prize winning technology only uses one-tenth of the 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 with a less invasive surgical technique or using a Taylor Spatial Frame to help grow new bone tissue, 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.
