Center for Pediatric Spinal Disorders

The Center for Pediatric Spinal Disorders is a collaborative, multi-disciplinary center between pediatric neurosurgery and pediatric orthopedic surgery. Children and their families are cared for by nurses, surgeons, and physical therapists. This team approach allows for the development of a consistent and clear message and treatment plan for children and their families. This approach expedites recovery and return to play.

Our spine experts have dedicated practices towards the care of patients with complex spinal disorders with extensive experience t in minimally invasive surgery. Our team advocates a conservative approach to children with spinal disorders with a focus on the promotion of spine health rather than the immediate surgical treatment of disease. Surgical treatments are considered after extensive team discussion with the patient and their family.

 

Our multidisciplinary team offers unparalleled breadth and depth of experience and brings together a rich history of pediatric spinal care.

Our doctors are at the forefront of cutting-edge research and innovation, including magnetic adjustable growing rod system  to non-invasively lengthen the device. When used in appropriate patients, the device may reduce the number of surgeries for children with spinal deformities.

We’ll make your visit as convenient as possible and develop an individualized treatment program for your child that continues into adulthood. As a comprehensive program we see all patients and a patient liaison will expedite a consultation and assist in scheduling a clinic visit for your child.

The best care
