Spine surgery specialists
More than 12,500 children in Louisville and Southern Indiana seek help from our specialists each year for orthopedic and spine conditions. These include everything from broken bones to sports injuries to spina bifida, hip reconstruction and scoliosis surgeries. Nearly half of these issues are severe enough to require emergency care. Pediatric specialists are essential in caring for growing bones, which require expertise to ensure that proper growth and development can continue.
Spine surgery expertise
Norton Leatherman Spine is known for embracing cutting-edge technology and techniques. In one recent case, an 8-year-old boy named Alex with severe syndromic scoliosis caused by a rare underlying genetic condition began having issues with one of his lungs. Rather than subject Alex to repeated surgical procedures, doctors implanted a new device that can be adjusted noninvasively through the use of magnets. This kept Alex healthier and resulted in a cost savings for his family.
