Please join me in welcoming Dr. David Lebel to our faculty at the Hospital for Sick Children in the capacity of Assistant Professor.
Dr. Lebel is a pediatric orthopedic surgeon with a special interest in complex spine deformities, early onset scoliosis and growing spine. Dr Lebel was trained at the Hospital for Sick Children as a pediatric orthopedic and a pediatric spine surgeon from 2011-2012. He recently moved from Israel with his family to join the faculty at HSC. He has been involved in several clinical studies about spine biomechanics with the novel 3D EOS reconstruction, long term follow up of brace treated patients and long term follow up of muscular dystrophy patients treated with steroids. In order to provide better treatment for patients with spine deformities, Dr. Lebel plans to conduct prospective studies about better post-operative pain management strategies and a translational research for better understating the etiology of scoliosis.
A warm welcome to David and his family from the Division of Orthopaedic Surgery!
