Spinal Deformity CURED

In order to provide the state of the art care to our patients who suffer from scoliosis and other spinal deformities an entire team is orchestrated consisting of experienced surgeons and nurses, experts in anesthesia, a neuromonitoring technician, an implant vendor, and pediatric intensive care doctor. Each plays an important role in the overall process and the quality results that are obtained. Thanks to the generosity of Biomet Spine and several people who have donated their time for children in the Dominican Republic we were able to again realize a successful week of spinal deformity surgery. Our goal is to give even the most economically challenged patients the opportunity to have a surgery that is equivalent to what is performed in the best medical centers in the United States. Thank you to Dr. Ray Woo, Dr. Henri Acosta and each of the important team members that helped make these life changing surgeries possible.
