Our mission: To discover new and better ways to care for the children affected with pediatric orthopedic conditions and certain related neurological disorders.
Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children opened its doors in 1921, and since then, the hospital has been researching ways to better care for TSRHC patients. Our formalized research center, the Sarah M. and Charles E. Seay Center for Musculoskeletal Research, consists of five centers for excellence supported by research divisions and core facilities. The main objective of the centers for excellence is to improve the lives of children by providing leadership in research and clinical care. These centers are designed to bring clinicians, researchers and other healthcare professionals and supporting staff together to perform innovative research on challenging pediatric disorders.
TSRHC’s culture encourages a multidisciplinary approach to actively seek better ways to help children, and the research center is an integral part of the hospital.
Our Research department is approximately 30,000 square feet and integrates the services and knowledge of investigators from various educational backgrounds, such as orthopedic surgery, biomechanical engineering, genetics, statistics, histology and motion analysis. Through the years, TSRHC researchers and physicians have generated 20 patents.
