Tethered Spinal Cord Program | Patient Resources

We specialize in family-centered treatment, which means that from your first visit to our Tethered Spinal Cord Program, you’ll work with a team of professionals who are committed to meeting your child's medical and surgical needs while providing emotional, psychosocial and educational support for your family.

How to make an appointment

You can make an appointment by calling us at 617-355-6008 or request an appointment online. When you make your initial appointment, a staff member will go over everything you’ll need on the day of your visit.
