H.Turner National Medical Research Center for Сhildren's Orthopedics and Trauma Surgery is the largest state clinic in Russia, the main scientific research and treatment and diagnostic center of our country, capable of solving any problems in the field of pediatric orthopedics and traumatology.

‘‘Our Centre really can be considered unique. Recently, we have introduced the latest methods of diagnosis and treatment of congenital and acquired disorders of the musculoskeletal system, starting from the earliest age. The surgical program of early treatment of children with deep extensive burns is substantiated and actively used. Systems of early conservative treatment of children with congenital clubfoot, with hip dysplasia, since the period of newborns, have been created. Constant attention is paid to the development of new diagnostic methods - ultrasonographic (including the stage of fetal development), endoscopic, computer and magnetic resonance imaging, X-ray densitometry.

The next stage in the development of the Institute was in December 2012 after the ceremonial opening of the Consultative Diagnostic and Training Center in reconstructed historical building on Lakhtinskaya Street, 10, which can rightly be called the cradle of the Turner Institute for Children’s Orthopedics. It was built in 1911-1914 on the instructions of Henry Turner on the project of the architect N. Brodovich specially to accommodate the shelter for children with developmental disorders of the musculoskeletal system. Reconstruction of this building with an area of more than 4.6 thousand sq. m. started in June 2010 and was completed in December 2012. The Center is equipped with medical diagnostic facilities that have the characteristics of the latest technical world developments, and robotic simulators for rehabilitation. The Center has all the necessary conditions for the admission, diagnosis and treatment of children with musculoskeletal disorders. Minimally invasive surgical interventions are carried out; a day hospital is open as well.

In total, the Institute’s clinic includes 500 beds for children with injuries of the musculoskeletal system and has 9 specialized surgical departments, rehabilitation department, robotic rehabilitation department, operating unit with anesthesiology and intensive care department, laboratory units, accompanying and support services.

Friendly scientific relations with foreign countries such as Sweden, Denmark, Poland, Austria, the USA, Australia, etc. are actively supported in the field of topical issues of children’s orthopedic and trauma surgery, joint scientific research is carried out.

I would like to point out that the outstanding team of scientists and physicians recognized both in Russia and abroad works in the Institute today’’.
