Musculoskeletal Infection (MSI) Program

Musculoskeletal Infection (MSI) Program

The pediatric MSI Program at Children’s Health℠ is the first and only disease-specific program in the nation recognized by The Joint Commission.

A musculoskeletal infection (MSI) is commonly found in the emergency room and can take many forms, depending on the factors involved including soft-tissue layers, bones and joints. Our Musculoskeletal Infection (MSI) Program, led by Medical Director Lawson Copley, M.D., combines the expertise of multiple pediatric specialists to provide diagnosis and treatment of the bone, tissue or joint damaging infections. The MSI team’s commitment to research offers patient and family centered care by efficiently and accurately diagnosing and treating your child.

A team supporting you at every step

The MSI Program at Children's Health is led by pediatric orthopedic surgeons who are consistently recognized by U.S. News & World Report to be among the best in the nation. Additionally, a team of experts including rheumatologists, hematology, oncology, infectious disease and other specialists are available at Children’s Health to treat and support all musculoskeletal infection patients. The MSI team will support you and your child as you make many important choices along the way.
