Cervical Spine Clinic

The Cervical Spine Clinic at Cincinnati Children’s is for children and teens with rare and complex cervical spine conditions. When you come here for care, you’ll benefit from highly skilled specialists, innovative surgical techniques and the latest technology.

We combine care from multiple experts in a team approach. That means we work with many different areas of the hospital. In this way, we are able to care for your whole child, not just their spine condition.
