The Spine Center conducts research and is involved in several trials with the goals of improving treatment methods for scoliosis and other spinal conditions, and determining the cause of scoliosis.

Patients are offered enrollment into the Setting Scoliosis Straight Harms Study Group registry or the Growing Spine Study Group registry as appropriate based on the diagnosis. Our spine surgeons hold leadership positions in these organizations, which are multicenter research groups that utilize the power of large datasets to advance the care of complex spinal conditions. Our patients are the first beneficiaries of the knowledge gained by this research.
