Five orthopedic surgeons at Washington University specialize in treating degenerative disease or arthritic conditions of the spine, deformities such as scoliosis and kyphosis, fractures and tumors of the spine, and low back pain. They employ both surgical and non-surgical treatments.
The university's spine service has one of the largest clinical experiences nationwide in the surgical management of pediatric spinal deformity, adult spinal deformity and complex cervical reconstruction. Other conditions commonly treated through surgery include lumbar stenosis, cervical stenosis, lumbar disc herniation, cervical disc herniation, spondylolisthesis, spinal fractures and spinal tumors.
Members of the spine service have presented more papers at the Scoliosis Research Society (SRS) during the past 10 years than any other center in North America. These faculty physicians are active members of the SRS, North American Spine Society and Cervical Spine Research Society.
