The following is a Q&A that TOA recently conducted with Dr. McIntosh.
TOA: One of your fields of expertise is pediatric spine deformity. How did you decide to specialize in this area?
I sub specialize in pediatric spine deformity and treat scoliosis on a daily basis. I was drawn to scoliosis surgery because of the ability to obtain tremendous correction of the spine curvature and immediately improve the clinical appearance of patients. Also, with new implants (screws and rods), patients return to activities relatively quickly.
