The Scoliosis & Spine Center at UM St. Joseph Medical Center offers a team of fellowship-trained and internationally-recognized medical professionals from Towson Orthopaedic Associates who treat more than 10,000 patients with spinal disorders each year.

The Scoliosis & Spine Center places special emphasis on educating and guiding patients and their families through all aspects of treatment. Your partners in care include registered nurses who prepare you for every step of a particular treatment pathway, operative or non-operative. We feel this continuum of care results in more effective communication and completely prepares a patient for their treatment and recovery.
