Pediatric Spinal Care
Does it really make a difference where your child gets treated? Yes!! The spine team at COA specializes in all aspects of pediatric spinal disorders, including advanced treatment for scoliosis and spinal deformity in infants, adolescents and young adults.
Children's Ortho surgeons operate exclusively at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta (CHOA). CHOA has one of the largest volumes of spinal surgeries per year setting national benchmarks when it comes to the care of children after scoliosis surgery.
Our surgeons knowledge of the latest innovations is second to none. COA surgeons frequently perform either robotic-assisted spinal surgery or image-guided spinal surgery. In fact, we are worldwide leaders in spinal robotics. We use the most advanced of equipment and implants, such as the MAGEC rods, but only when these technologies are approved by the FDA.
The spine team at COA is dedicated to research and teaching. We train two fellows per year specializing in pediatric orthopedics and spinal surgery, and have done so for 30+ years. We are a robot and medical center of excellence where many other surgeons even come to learn. We are also instructors at many national courses in advanced spinal surgery.
You have a choice – get it right the first time. Our goal to return your child to a normal and active life. Contact Children's Ortho today to learn more about your child's condition and your options.
