Spinal deformities can have a major effect on kids' ribs, chest wall and trunk, and their ability to breathe, walk or just be "normal." That's why we want to help children feel and be their best — whatever kind of spinal deformity they face.* As experts in spine care, we specialize in the diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of pediatric spinal deformities.

Please check the value set for active tab. Tab 4 does not exist.

* Each child’s surgery is different, and some patients may not be able to perform complex movements or participate in all sporting activities after their procedure. Discuss with your doctor what activities may or may not be permitted after your individual procedure.
