Orthopaedic Institute for Children (OIC) is the sole provider of pediatric orthopedics for UCLA Mattel Children’s Hospital. In fact, we are the largest pediatric orthopaedic program in the western U.S. with more than 70,000 patient visits last year. OIC’s impact extends well beyond the region. Our International Children’s Program is one of the largest in the country. We are also proud of the groundbreaking discoveries occurring in our Orthopaedic Research Center where more than 30 clinicians/scientists focus on skeletal development, dysplasia and pediatric reconstruction.
