A structure that affects every move you make, the spine plays an integral role in your health and quality of life. When your spine is compromised, whether by deformity, degeneration or a spinal tumor, the pain, the deformity and other debilitating effects can be devastating.
That's why Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Plano established an advanced Scoliosis and Spine Tumor Center focused on providing the most appropriate and least invasive treatment, support and coping strategies for adolescents and adults suffering from spinal deformities and tumors. Minimally-invasive surgery, which is highly innovative for scoliosis and spine tumor care, offers patients less scarring, a shorter hospital stay and a quicker recovery.
Led by an internationally known spine surgeon, the center combines innovative minimally invasive technologies and the wide range of resources available at Texas Health Plano to develop a comprehensive plan tailored to your individual needs. The care team includes nurses and therapists who focus on meeting patients' emotional, as well as physical needs. Caregivers at the center also address the special needs of adolescents for whom a spinal deformity can have a social impact and for whom the possibility of surgery can be particularly frightening.
The goal at the center is to provide the most appropriate and least invasive care to improve the patient's condition and quality of life. It is a goal that requires specialized expertise and a full range of support services.
