Spine Surgery

CHKD neurosurgeons and orthopedic surgeons perform expert pediatric back surgery on the spinal cord and spine.

Our surgeons have years of experience treating a variety of pediatric spine conditions, including:

  • Spine trauma. Serious accidents, such as car crashes and falls, can cause injuries to the spine. Spinal trauma can lead to pain, weakness or in severe cases, paralysis. CHKD spine surgeons use surgical techniques to relieve pressure on the spine, realign the spine or perform other procedures to improve symptoms of spine trauma.
  • Spinal cord tumors. Spinal cord tumors, which can be cancerous or non-cancerous, cause problems such as pain, weakness or loss of control of the bladder or bowel. Neurosurgeons carefully remove spine cancer tumors as completely as possible to relieve symptoms and restore your child's abilities. In CHKD’s neuro-oncology program, expert pediatric neurosurgeons and pediatric oncologists work together to treat tumors and keep them from coming back.
  • Spine deformities. Our experienced surgeons offer treatment for many spinal deformities, including scoliosis, kyphosis and lordosis. If braces don’t correct spine curvature, advanced spine surgeries can help your child stand straighter. Using special rods, spine surgeons can realign the spine during back surgery and help keep it in place as your child grows.

At CHKD, your child receives comprehensive care before, during and after their spine surgery. From advanced neurosurgeries through physical therapy, we help your child recover from all spine conditions, rebuild strength and enjoy just being a kid.
