Our mission is to discover new innovative ways to best care for the children affected with orthopedic and certain related neurological conditions.

Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children opened its doors in 1921, and since then, our doctors and researchers have been seeking ways to provide the best quality care for our patients. The Sarah M. and Charles E. Seay Center for Musculoskeletal Research consists of six centers for excellence. The main objective of the centers of excellence is to bring clinicians, researchers and other health care professionals and supporting staff together to perform innovative and clinically relevant research on challenging pediatric disorders.
