As kids head back to school this fall, it’s not uncommon for the nurse on site to conduct basic checks for scoliosis. If a curvature of the spine is found, parents can turn to Atlantic Health System’s newly-opened Scoliosis and Spinal Deformity Center for expert care. We offer growth preservation techniques, genetic testing to predict potential curve progression, bracing and spinal fusion procedures. Pediatric specialists from Goryeb Children’s Hospitals’ pulmonology, neurology and child development teams collaborate closely with our spine physicians to ensure the best outcomes for younger patients.
