Over the week, we evaluate 50-60 children with spinal deformities and provide surgery to 10-15 of these children. Our entire team evaluates all the children together and participates in the operating room - each team member providing important insight into the care of the child.

Common diagnoses include:

  • Cervical instability
  • Chiari malformations
  • Diastematomyelia
  • Hyperkyphosis
  • Rare syndromes
  • Scoliosis (all types in all pediatric age groups)
  • Spina bifida
