Comprehensive Care for the Adolescent and Pediatric Spine

Connecticut Children’s Division of Orthopedics Spine Program is made up of fellowship-trained pediatric orthopedic spine surgeons and neurosurgeons. We provide compassionate, family-centered care for pediatric patients with all spinal conditions, including:

  • Scoliosis
  • Kyphosis
  • Spondylolysis
  • Tumors and vascular malformations of the spine
  • Congenital spine deformities
  • Fractures
  • Back pain

Spine deformity and spine injury in a growing child or young adult can have lifelong impacts on their function and self-image. Our goal is to restore comfort and mobility to your child’s spine so they can thrive.
