Spine Research

In the clinics and operating rooms, our Stanford pediatric spine team provides exceptional care to children with spine conditions. Furthermore,  as researchers the pediatric spine physicians continually evaluate treatment options, develop new models for care, and collaborate with both U.S. based and international institutions to improve the ways in which we, as a community of health care providers, care for spine conditions. We recognize the importance of ethically conducting and critically understanding research to ensure that our patients receive the best possible care.
