Dedicated to the optimal care of patients with spinal deformity

Research Topics

The Research Grant Committee feels the following topics are important areas for research as part of the 2021-2024 Research Agenda. This list is not all-inclusive and should not deter other areas of spinal pathology research.

1. Pediatric and Young Adult High Grade Spondylolisthesis

2. Identifying the Optimal Evaluation of Pulmonary Function to Follow for Pediatric Spine Deformity

3. Study of Syndromic and Other Rare Deformities (e.g. SMA, Pediatric Cervical Spine, etc.)

4. Growth Modulation (e.g. Anterior Vertebral Body Tethering)

5. Carcinogenic Effects of (Cobalt Chrome) Implants

6. Global Screening Program for AIS

7. Prediction and Modelling

8. Etiology

9. Non-Operative Treatment of AIS (Physiotherapeutic Scoliosis Specific Exercises and Night-time Bracing)

10. Long-term Outcomes of Pediatric and Adolescent Spinal Deformity

11. Natural History of AIS

12. Natural History of Degenerative Adult Spinal Deformity

13. Non-Operative Treatment of Adult Spinal Deformity: Evaluating and Defining Conservative Care in ASD
