Our Scoliosis Screening Program partners with physicians, county health departments and school nurses to detect early signs of scoliosis in the at-risk population.
- We offer registered nurse-facilitated scoliosis tertiary clinics at several metro Atlanta locations with X-ray evaluation for children referred from both physicians and school screenings.
- X-ray results are sent to the families and their primary care physicians along with a treatment recommendation.
To refer a patient to the tertiary clinic, have parents call 404-785-7553.
We facilitate access to area pediatric orthopaedic surgeons and additional orthopaedic resources.
Our program’s registered nurse coordinator provides in-service presentations at physicians’ offices in metro Atlanta. Complete an in-service request form to schedule.
