Meet the Spine Care Team

Children need spine care that’s unique to their growing bodies. We use a team approach to diagnose, treat and rehabilitate spine and spinal cord conditions in children. The neurosurgery and orthopedic specialists with Children’s Orthopedics of Louisville (COOL), Norton Children’s Neurosurgery and Norton Leatherman Spine collaborate to offer advanced surgical and nonsurgical treatments for spine and spinal cord injuries, deformities and diseases, including scoliosis and congenital spine disorders.

 

Norton Children’s specialists work cooperatively with primary care physicians and other specialists to create an individualized care plan based on each child’s unique needs.
