Having your child undergo surgery can seem insurmountable to a parent. But, there are things you can do to ensure the experience is as safe as possible for your child. The Allens share how they prepared for the best possible scenario for their daughter, Jessica.
Jessica's dad Doug shares five factors he recommends reviewing when planning for spine surgery for your child.
Medical Director of our Spine Program Dr. Mark Erickson explains what surgical outcomes are and why they matter for helping keep kids safe.
At Children's Colorado, we treat more kids, teens and young adults with spine conditions, like scoliosis, than any other hospital in our region.
Our spine team is constantly working to research newer, better ways to improve quality and patient safety for our spine surgery patients.
Our pediatric spine team wants to ensure your family feels as comfortable as possible about your child's upcoming spine surgery. That is why we provide special information sessions for our scoliosis patients. For children under 12 years old, we offer a one-on-one session with a pediatric spine nurse. For those 12 years old and older, we offer a spine class where your child can meet with a patient who had scoliosis surgery at our hospital.
