Brenner’s Spinal Deformity Clinic, the only clinic of its kind in western North Carolina, is made up of a multidisciplinary team of experts, including orthopaedic surgeons, neurosurgeons and physical therapists, who work together to create a seamless and successful treatment and follow-up plan for patients with spinal deformities.

What should I bring with me to an office appointment?

When you come for your appointment, please bring your child’s medical records and any imaging studies, which should be placed on a CD or other electronic storage device. Please bring your original studies with you, if possible. During your office visit, our doctors will examine your child. If surgery is required, it will be scheduled at a later date. For any issues located from the waist down, it will be helpful to bring or wear a pair of gym shorts to allow our physicians to examine your child while keeping him or her as comfortable as possible.

What are the steps I need to take to prepare my child for surgery?

Being there for your child before, during and after surgery is the most important thing you can do to help him or her. Surgery can be a very stressful time; your support helps your child maintain the highest level of emotional health. You may also want to do the following to prepare your child for surgery: 

  • Make a list of questions about your child’s diagnosis and treatment and bring that list to your appointments with your doctor. 
  • Bring some of your child’s favorite things with you for his or her stay at Brenner. Those comfort items might include family photos, books, favorite toys or stuffed animals, music and a portable music player or a laptop computer.
  • You should also bring things to help you during your child’s period of stay at Brenner. It’s important that you also maintain optimal physical and emotional health during your child’s surgery and post-operative treatment.

We offer a range of support services for patients and their families. Please ask your health care team for more information about Brenner’s support services and a checklist of things to do right before surgery, including any restrictions on food and water intake.

What should I do to care for my child after surgery?

Your health care team will review with you the instructions you should follow after your child’s surgery. These instructions will be specific to your child’s type of surgery and his or her individualized care plan. We will arrange a follow-up appointment with you in advance, if needed. If your child is running a fever after you return home, please call us right away at 336-716-8094.

Is my child going to be okay?

Our pediatric orthopaedic surgeons are experts in their field and have been performing surgeries on babies, children, teens and young adults for many years. We use the latest in clinical and technological advancements in the care of our patients and will do all that is medically possible to ensure your child has the best possible outcome during his or her period of care at Brenner Children’s Hospital. In addition, we manage a thorough follow-up care program and work closely with your pediatrician and other pediatric specialists to ensure continued optimal care and treatment for your child.

How often do we need to see you?

Your treatment schedule will depend upon your child’s surgery and condition. Your pediatric orthopaedic surgeon will work with you to set up a schedule that fits your schedule and your child’s specific health care needs.

Can my child play sports and participate in the things they love to do?

Our goal is to see your child enjoy life. We will do everything possible to get your child back to doing his or her favorite things. Certain conditions and treatments may, however, limit your child’s ability to participate in some sports and other physical activities. Your doctor will provide you with this guidance in detail during your child’s period of care.
