In spinal deformity surgery, spinal alignment is of paramount importance. This discipline includes advanced reconstructive spine surgery techniques to manage skeletal deformities such as scoliosis and oncologic and congenital disorders of the spine. The Complex and Reconstructive Spine Surgery fellowship assumes that the successful candidate has a solid foundation in spinal surgery and instrumentation; it provides the skills in evaluation and treatment of spinal deformity. Other advanced treatment modalities such as image guidance and minimally invasive surgery supplement the deformity training.
The yearlong fellowship is accredited by the Committee on Accreditation of Subspecialty Training of the Society of Neurological Surgeons. It’s based at Northwestern University’s McGaw Medical Center and Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago.
