Helping Children Grow and Play Well

LuskinOIC is the largest provider of pediatric orthopaedic care on the West Coast. Eighty percent of patients are of color, and 93% are underinsured or uninsured. California is ranked 47th of 50 states in Medicaid reimbursement for children’s healthcare. Donations help offset the lack of insurance reimbursements for underinsured children. 

For patient Efrain, for example, non-reimbursed costs include such things as prosthesis ($25,000); physical therapy visits ($300 per visit); and X-rays ($129 per visit). Every donation goes to help kids like Efrain walk. Funds also allow LuskinOIC to train the next generation of medical personnel and conduct groundbreaking research.

For the past 22 years, Luskin Orthopaedic Institute for Children has been the sole provider of pediatric orthopaedics for the UCLA Health System, and is ranked among the best pediatric orthopaedic programs in the nation by U.S. News & World Report.
