Otwock, Poland

Otwock is a small town just outside of Warsaw. The team stays in Warsaw in a very interesting part of the city. Warsaw is a major international tourist destination and significant cultural hub. It has been the capital of Poland since 1596. Dr. Marcin Tyrakowski is our local host.

Advantages of Otwock:

  • Direct flights from many U.S. cities (Warsaw)
  • Central Europe
  • We stay in Warsaw
  • No vaccines necessary
  • 7 day time commitment
  • No visa necessary
  • SAFE!!


Over the week, we evaluate 20-30 children with spinal deformities and provide surgery to 5-10 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:

  • Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis
  • Early onset scoliosis
  • Syndromic scoliosis
  • Hyperkyphosis
  • Rare syndromes
