Choosing the right spinal surgeon is a major decision for you and your family. But it’s not an easy task! How can you be sure you’re choosing an expert? To help you make a wise decision, we recommend using the 5 steps below to evaluate each surgeon you’re considering:

Experience: Are they experienced with spinal deformity surgery?
Reputation: Do they have a good reputation with other surgeons?
Research: What research have they published? How has it improved surgical care for patients?
Teaching: Do they teach and train other spinal deformity surgeons?
Integrity: Do you feel you can trust them? What do other patients say about them?
If a surgeon scores highly when evaluated against these questions, you’re heading in the right direction.
