Orthopaedic Institute for Children
Orthopaedic Institute for Children (OIC) was founded in 1911 as a clinic for children with crippling disorders. The mission then is the same today: provide excellence in orthopaedic care regardless of the family's ability to pay. OIC is the largest privately funded specialty facility of its kind in the Western US. With a team of experts dedicated to improving the quality of life for children with musculoskeletal disorders, it is the pre-eminent provider of pediatric orthopedic care, education and research. Las Amigas is dedicated to supporting OIC and its mission.
Since 1911, over 2 million patients have been treated.
