The Children's Difference for Scoliosis Screening

Our Scoliosis Screening Program partners with physicians, county health departments and school nurses to detect early signs of scoliosis in the at-risk population.

Tertiary clinics

  • 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.
