The Baylor Scoliosis Center Staff 

Meet the Scoliosis Care Team

The Baylor Scoliosis Center is staffed by a multi-specialty team including fellowship-trained scoliosis surgeons, cardiac anesthesiologists, physiatrists and physician assistants on the medical staff at Baylor Scott & White who specialize in the care of patients with complicated spinal deformities.

At the Baylor Scoliosis Center, our focus is on delivering quality patient care. A physician and nurse are available 24 hours a day to provide access to care in the event of an emergency and our staff is committed to serving you.

We also help you manage your treatment costs by working with your insurance company. Often, scoliosis surgery is considered an appropriate medical treatment and is generally covered by insurance. We have significant experience in managing insurance issues and are ready to help.

Among the staff members at the Baylor Scoliosis Center are:  

Patient Care Coordinators

Our patient care coordinators help coordinate all aspects of your pre- and post-operative surgical care. They provide you and your family with education and counseling regarding your scoliosis procedure, as well as assist you with housing and travel arrangements should you require them.

Nurse Navigator

The nurse navigator is your single point of contact who can guide you through the continuum of care. She will help you understand your diagnosis, treatment options and resources available including educating you about community resources, technologies, hospital services and support services. She will serve as an essential link between you and your health care provider.
