We would like to welcome you and thank you for selecting Columbia Doctors Division of Pediatric Orthopedic Surgery to care for your child. NewYork-Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital (MSCHONY) is Manhattan's only hospital dedicated solely to the care of children, and we perform the most children’s spine surgery in New York. We are also a major international referral center, meeting the special needs of children from infancy through adolescence worldwide.
We understand your child's individual developmental needs and take a holistic approach to care. MSCHONY offers a multidisciplinary approach which includes collaboration between nationally recognized pediatric physicians from every subspecialty. You will encounter pediatric specific providers throughout your stay including our Pediatric Spine ICU Intensivists, Anesthesiologists/Pain Service, Physical and Occupational Therapists, Child Life Specialists, and Nursing staff. Our team treats hundreds of surgical spine patients every year and that expertise leads to improved patient outcomes, like having one of the lowest infection rates in the country.
It is our hope that this book will answer many of your questions about Neuromuscular Scoliosis and assist you in preparing for your child’s surgery. We encourage you to read and refer to it throughout your time with us as it contains information useful during the preoperative planning, hospitalization and recovery stages.
