Depressing. Painful. Exhausting. Just some of the words that people with scoliosis live with every day. Scoliosis, which affects over 12 million people worldwide, can lead to progressive deformity in the spine as well as incapacitating pain. Too often people are told that there is nowhere else to turn - but there is.
Baylor Scoliosis CenterBaylor Scoliosis Center is a national referral center located on the campus of Baylor Regional Medical Center at Plano, and we also see patients at a clinic at Baylor All Saints Medical Center at Fort Worth. The Center is focused on the care of adolescent and adult scoliosis. The physicians on the medical staff at the Center treat scoliosis, kyphosis, Scheuermann's disease, as well as revision scoliosis surgery and spondylolisthesis.
The Center is staffed by a multispecialty team, including fellowship-trained scoliosis surgeons, cardiac anesthesiologists, physiatrists and physician assistants specializing in the care of patients with complicated spinal deformities. Last year, the Center performed over 400 surgeries on adolescents and adults as well as offering scoliosis screening, bracing and conservative care for patients from all over the United States and abroad.
Continuity of CarePhilosophically, the 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 doctor 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.
