Variety the Children’s Charity of Wisconsin historically provided major support to these major clinics in Milwaukee.
The Variety Orthopedic Clinic at Children’s Hospital: The Variety Orthopedic Clinic at Children’s Hospital is world renowned for its work with children and prosthetic therapy. Variety has helped to create the Gait Lab and has purchased a non-nuclear scanning machine used for treating scoliosis patients. This equipment reduces the exposure to x-rays over a child’s life, which is valuable because radiation exposure increases the future chance of developing cancer.
The Epilepsy Clinic at Children’s Hospital: The Pediatric Epilepsy Center specializes in the treatment of epilepsy in children, especially those with unusual or difficult to control seizures. Medical treatment is offered for all types of seizures, and epilepsy surgery is offered for certain types of seizures.
Variety of Wisconsin currently does not provide funding to organizations but can provide direct financial assistance to children for therapy, durable medical and mobility equipment, orthotics, and more.
