The medical team at Shriners Hospitals for Children — Honolulu is equipped and staffed to care for children with congenital and acquired orthopaedic conditions. We help children with a wide range of problems resulting from orthopaedic injuries, as well as diseases of the bones, joints and muscles. The hospital staff also helps healed burn patients who may have developed orthopaedic complications, scarring and deformity of the limbs as a result of those burns.

The hospital is also an academic teaching and research institution. We partner with teaching programs, including the University of Hawaii Pediatric and Orthopaedic Residency Programs, NYU Lutheran Medical Center Dental Residency Program, Tripler Army Medical Center Pediatric and Orthopaedic Residency Program, University of Hawaii John A. Burns School of Medicine and Pacific University School of Physician Assistant Studies.
