For Physicians and School Nurses 

Referring Physicians

The Baylor Scoliosis Center emphasizes continuity of care. Patients of all ages are treated at the center, from adolescents to adults. Families whose children are treated at the center will have the same physicians care for them once they reach adulthood. This approach allows the long-term treatment plan to be implemented without interruption.

The Baylor Scoliosis Center care model makes both physician referral and patient scheduling a priority; a direct physician telephone line allows most physician referrals to be seen within 48 hours if requested.

Paperwork for the referring physician is minimized and the communication of findings takes place by telephone or by timely referral letter. The result is that the patient's anxiety, especially for pediatric referrals, is minimized.

The center is a resource for physicians and patients devoted to the most advanced treatments for spinal deformity within the framework of a patient-centered and physician-friendly atmosphere. 

A Message to School Nurses

 As a school nurse, you're on the front lines of diagnosing scoliosis in children and adolescents. Undoubtedly, you've seen patients who have mild or gradual symptoms, which were barely noticeable until you discovered them through a school screening. Perhaps you also know individuals who live with this potentially devastating condition.

The Baylor Scoliosis Center was founded to treat patients, both children and adults, who are diagnosed with scoliosis. In addition to ongoing research for treatment of scoliosis, we are dedicated to providing the utmost in quality care to each individual patient who enters the Baylor Scoliosis Center. We offer a healing environment that nurtures both the physical and emotional well-being of each patient.

The Baylor Scoliosis Center is committed to helping you provide the best care to your students through community outreach, guidance/support, or by assisting in conducting required scoliosis screenings at your school.
