Condition or Therapy: Spine and/or chest deformities
Category: Orthopedics and Sports Medicine

What is the goal of this study?

The Spine and Chest Wall Deformity Registries collect medical information about children with spine and chest wall deformities. Information entered in this database will help researchers learn more about these conditions, outcomes of care and which treatments are most helpful.

Who can join the study?

This study might be a good fit for your child if they have a spine and/or chest wall deformity.

What happens in the study?

If you choose to take part, researchers will review your child’s medical chart to collect information about their specific condition and treatments. You might be asked to fill out a survey about your child’s health. The survey takes about 10 minutes to complete and will be given to you at your regular orthopedic visit at Seattle Children’s.
