It is an honor and privilege to be part of the Spinal Program in the Department of Orthopedic Surgery at Boston Children’s Hospital. We are fortunate to have a breadth and depth of experience that allows us to care for the most complex and challenging pediatric deformities. Our goal is to continue the tradition of individual, patient-centered care for our spinal deformity patients, whether they are local or international, straightforward or complex, operative or non-operative.
