International care and outreach
Not only do our doctors see patients at Shriners Hospitals for Children — St. Louis, but they travel all over the world to care for patients with limb length discrepancies and other pediatric orthopaedic problems. Each year our team travels to the Caribbean, most recently to the island nation of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, to conduct clinics and perform surgeries on patients. If the patient has a more serious condition, the hospital works with the World Pediatric Project to help bring them to the United States for treatment. If you know of an international patient who could benefit from our care, please contact Jill at 314-692-6443.
