The clinic is designated to treat all spinal column problems in children, including spinal distortion, scoliosis, congenital spinal problems – from birth through to the end of the monitoring period – all types of back pain, tumors on the spine, trauma and injury-related conditions, sports injuries, and more. The most common ailments though are distortions in the spinal column, scoliosis and kyphosis (curvature of the spine).

We also treat disorders in vertebrae development.

The clinic receives referrals from doctors who have already seen the child and suspect a problem. Most patients come with X-rays, and if not, we take them here. We conduct a physical examination and decide what treatment is appropriate – i.e. conservative, girdle, physiotherapy, a combination or sometimes surgery.   

The clinic works in conjunction with other departments, such Pediatric Neurology, Pediatric EU, the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and the Maternity Ward.

We have good connections with colleagues overseas, with whom we cooperate and consult on complex cases. Similarly, our doctors are engaged in academic activity and research in Israel and overseas.
