Our program is also nationally recognized by U.S. News & World Report as one of the best pediatric orthopedics programs.
 
The Division of Pediatric Spinal Surgery at Miami Children’s Hospital focuses on spinal disorders and scoliosis of the spine. Scoliosis, or the curving of the spine to the right or left, can be extremely painful when it develops in children. It is important that scoliosis is detected early on and treated accordingly to minimize back pain and prevent the condition from developing further. The orthopedic experts at Miami Children’s specialize in diagnosing scoliosis of the spine and performing scoliosis surgery.

The division of spinal surgery, under the direction of Dr. Harry Shufflebarger, has achieved national and international prominence in treating all types of spinal disorders. More pediatric spinal fusion procedures are provided at Miami Children's Hospital than any hospital in Florida. Dr. Shufflebarger remains active in presentations at local, national and international meetings and has authored over 15 textbook chapters, published in excess of 50 scientific articles, and delivered hundreds of scientific presentations around the world dealing with spinal disorders.
