Gillette provides specialty care to patients whose conditions include:

  • Complex conditions such as cerebral palsy, epilepsy, spina bifida, scoliosis, hydrocephalus and muscular dystrophy.
  • Rare disorders such as osteogenisis imperfecta, Rett syndrome, and spinal muscular atrophy.
  • Traumatic injuries including spinal cord injuries, severe brain injuries, complex or acute fractures and sports-related soft tissue injuries.

These conditions demand time and specialized expertise – right from the beginning. They are undeterred in their efforts to find the reasons and the solutions.


They choose to focus on what is possible without downplaying or glossing over challenges. If a solution doesn’t exist, they build it. If a question is unanswered, they research it. If a child has a dream, it becomes their dream, too.

Why Gillette Children's is Different

Since 1897, Gillette Children’s has focused on some of the toughest challenges in pediatric medicine. They care for brain, bone and movement conditions needing specialized expertise. When families arrive at our door, they feel they’ve come home. We’re inspired by their perseverance.
