In the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab, we continue to lead in our comprehensive focus on providing specialty rehabilitation care for children from infancy — in conjunction with our partners at Pathways — through adolescence, including care for children with traumatic injuries, congenital and developmental disorders, and those surviving cancer. We also continue our leadership in providing the best — and sometimes only — hope of recovery for infants, toddlers and teens surviving tragic circumstances such as gunshot wounds or abuse.
The Pediatric Innovation Center provides state-of the-art care and features lively child-centered themes to create a stimulating — uplifting — atmosphere for young patients, their families and caregivers. Clinicians and scientists associated with the Center include exceptionally qualified practitioners in specific areas of care — particularly in the special competencies required to treat children. To drive the best possible outcomes for their young patients, these pediatric specialists also leverage the leading knowledge and discoveries evolving in other Innovation Centers (Brain; Spinal Cord, Nerve, Muscle & Bone; Cancer).
