Research Summary

My research focuses primarily on the clinical outcomes of children with spinal disorders. Through leadership and participation in national and international clinical registries, my team is continuously investigating methods to study and improve the clinical care of pediatric patients with spinal disorders including scoliosis, tethered spinal cords, Chiari I malformation, cervical spine instability, basilar invagination, spinal tumors, and other neurosurgical problems. The Pediatric Spine Foundation and the Pediatric Craniocervical Society are two of the collaborative groups that serve as platforms to conduct multidisciplinary, multi-center research projects that have the statistical power to provide meaningful conclusions and improve the care of children with spinal disorders.
