Does it really make a difference where you get treated? Yes!! The spine team at COA specializes in all aspects of pediatric spinal disorders, including advanced treatment for scoliosis and spinal deformity in children, adolescents and young adults.
The COA surgeons operate exclusively at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta (CHOA) - and they have one of the largest volumes of spinal surgery per year. CHOA also sets national benchmarks when it comes to the care of children after scoliosis surgery. They also have multi- disciplanary expertise dedicated to the treatment of children – pediatric nursing, pediatric anesthesia, pediatric radiology, and other med services when needed.
Our 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.
Lastly, the spine team at COA is dedicated to reseach and teaching. We train two fellows per year specializing in pediatric orthopedics and spinal surgery, and have done so for 30+ years. Our surgeons train other surgeons. We are a robot and Medicrea center of excellence. We are also instructors at many national courses in advanced spinal surgery.
