Pediatric Spine Research Publications

All of our pediatric orthopedic spine research starts with the database. As a result of our research collaboration with other hospitals, departments and databases national and international, there are over 75 publications citations in peer reviewed journals by our faculty in PubMed and 150 national and international presentations, and 100 posters. Major changes have occurred in the care of pediatric spine patients in our institution and other programs because of our ongoing research work including:
