Research And Education

As an academic medical center, Stony Brook Children's has the privilege of training the next generation of physicians — something that also brings many benefits to hospital patients including access to the latest protocols and procedures as well as to some of the best minds in medicine. Twelve residents a year are trained at Stony Brook in pediatric orthopedic medicine, many of whom go on to receive national attention for the clinical and research achievements.Currently, the Department is dedicating its research efforts to scoliosis and limb lengthening.
