When a child is diagnosed with tethered spinal cord syndrome, the entire family begins a difficult journey. Patients and parents depend upon the expertise and compassionate, family-focused approach of their caregivers to help guide them through surgery and its aftermath.

Our Tethered Spinal Cord Program includes some of the world’s best surgeons, neuroscience nurses, imaging specialists and other healthcare professionals. Our strength in all of the related sub-specialties ensures that we are ready to address every aspect of your child’s care, from diagnostic testing and surgery to aftercare and long-term support.
