What Sets Us Apart

Specialists at NYU Langone’s Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital care for children with scoliosis, an abnormal curvature of the spine that may cause pain and other problems if proper treatment does not begin quickly after diagnosis. Our pediatric orthopaedic surgeons, neurosurgeons, physical therapists, and rehabilitation medicine specialists are experienced in diagnosing and treating children who have simple or more complex forms of this condition. 

Having a wide variety of specialists allows us to work as a team to identify the most effective—and least invasive—approach to prevent your child’s scoliosis from progressing.

Doctors at NYU Langone also diagnose and manage scoliosis and kyphosis in adults.

Treatment at NYU Langone

Our experts can usually control the progression of mild or moderate scoliosis with nonsurgical treatments, especially if started early. For children who have a more aggressive type of scoliosis—or for those with other problems caused by the condition, such as spinal cord compression—our doctors may recommend surgery.
