What should I ask my child's spinal doctor?

Your child’s spinal team becomes a long-term health care partner. A few questions can help inform decision-making. Consider asking:

•   What is the team’s experience with non-operative treatment and operative
     treatment?
•   What are the success rates for each approach?
•   What type of psycho-social support is provided for patients and their
    families?

We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
