Learn about different surgical procedures and treatment options available for adult scoliosis and spinal deformities at a free seminar being held on Wednesday, November 28 from 6-8:30 PM at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital (173 Fort Washington Avenue).

World-renowned spine specialists Lawrence Lenke, MD, Ronald Lehman, MD, and Peter Angevine, MD will host this informational program aimed at helping allay fears and addressing concerns such as pain and discomfort. They will provide in-depth information about all aspects of spinal deformity care from patient intake to recovery.

Physician assistants, nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists, and rehabilitation medicine doctors will be on-hand to answer questions or to help schedule a future consultation.

In addition, current and former patients will speak about their personal experiences living with spinal deformities and receiving treatment at the NewYork-Presbyterian Och Spine Hospital.

NYP Och Spine Hospital offers comprehensive spine care ranging from treatment of common disorders to the rarest, most complex conditions. As part of New York's #1 hospital, NewYork-Presbyterian Och Spine Hospital doctors use an interdisciplinary approach that draws on neurosurgery, orthopedic surgery, physiatry, pain management and physical therapy to best support patients from diagnosis through rehabilitation.

This event will be held at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/ Columbia University Irving Medical Center, 173 Fort Washington Ave. in the Riverview Terrace. Refreshments and appetizers will be served.
