Restoring Lives for Children and Adults With Scoliosis
Norton Leatherman Spine is respected around the world as a leading provider of scoliosis treatment and the premier destination for patients in Louisville and Southern Indiana with curvature of the spine.
The pioneering work of Kenton D. Leatherman, M.D., in developing new approaches to treating scoliosis after World War II provides the foundation for today’s practice. Our orthopedic spine physicians are at the leading edge of innovative scoliosis care today.
Our specialists continue Dr. Leatherman’s devotion to advancing medical science to provide better outcomes with fewer side effects for patients.
Depending on the severity and type of scoliosis, our specialists will discuss options ranging from exercise treatment to bracing to surgery.
