Orthopaedic care benefits brothers

The best place to find Mitchell and Spencer is on a golf course or basketball court, or in a swimming pool or karate studio. Parents Brad and Marni say Shriners Hospitals for Children is to thank for that. Spencer, age 9, born with bilateral club feet, was referred to the hospital by his pediatrician when he was only 1 week old. His brother, Mitchell, 11, first came to Shriners Hospital at age 5, with cerebral palsy. There have been hundreds of visits and numerous surgeries over the years.  

“The thing we appreciate the most is the number one goal always revolves around what is best for the patient,” Marni says. “The fact that the hospital is able to help with both of our children’s conditions has made it even more amazing.”

Brothers stau active playing golf and practicing karate among other sports.
