  • Klane K. White, MD, MSc is a pediatric orthopaedic surgeon and Director of the Skeletal Health and Dysplasia Program at Seattle Children’s Hospital.  He is an Associate Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of Washington and a diplomate of the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery.

    A graduate of the University of Southern California, Dr. White earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Biology and Biological Oceanography, respectively.  He received his doctor of medicine from the George Washington University in Washington, DC.  Dr. White completed his surgical internship and orthopaedic surgery residency at the University of California San Diego, as well as a two-year NIH sponsored fellowship in orthopaedic research. He received advanced fellowship training in pediatric orthopaedics and scoliosis at Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children in Dallas, Texas.

    Dr. White is an internationally recognized expert and advocate in the care of mucopolysaccharidosis and skeletal dysplasia.  He serves on the medical advisory board of Little People of America, and is an executive founding member of the Skeletal Dysplasia Management Consortium. Following three terms on the National MPS Society board of directors, he continues to chair the technical grant review committee, and serves on the Scientific Advisory Board.  His professional affiliations include membership in the Pediatric Orthopaedic Society of North America, Scoliosis Research Society, American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, American Academy of Pediatrics, American Orthopedic Association and Children’s Spine Study Group.  Distinctions include the combined Pediatric Orthopaedic Society of North America/ European Pediatric Orthopedic Society Traveling Fellowship, the Scoliosis Research Society Edgar Dawson Traveling Fellowship, and the Pediatric Orthopaedic Society of North America Angela S.M. Kuo Memorial Young Investigator Award.

    In addition to skeletal dysplasia and the mucopolysaccharidoses, Dr. White’s clinical and research interests also include the diagnosis and management of early onset scoliosis (including VEPTR and magnetic growing rods), metabolic bone disease, and complex spine and hip deformity.  As a key opinion leader in these fields, he trains residents, fellows, visiting scholars, and is a frequent invited lecturer at national and international conferences, courses, symposia, and patient advocacy meetings. His research is routinely presented at national and international scientific and specialty society congresses, and he is a principal investigator in several multicenter research studies for rare disease.  Dr. White has authored more than 60 peer-reviewed publications, review articles and book chapters.  He is a standing reviewer for the Journal of Pediatric Orthopedics and the Journal of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgery. He serves as Associate Editor for Frontiers in Pediatrics – Orthopaedics section, an ad hoc reviewer for multiple other medical journals, and as guest editor for Journal of Pediatric Orthopaedics.

    • Jared Marysville, WA 06.21.16

      Dr. White has been my son's doctor for the past several years and he has provided an excellent level of care. My son had a magnetic growth rod installed in October of 2014 to correct severe scoliosis of the spine. The care before, during, and after the procedure was excellent. Dr. White and his staff were very compassionate and informative throughout the process.

    • Jeff kirkland Wa 04.24.16

      Dr. White saw my son Jeffery after a trampoline accident that broke Jeffery's humorus bone just above the elbow ( level 3 break).
