Clinical Expertise

Pediatric Scoliosis Spinal Deformities Complex Cervical Spine Conditions

Biography

Michael Glotzbecker, MD, is a pediatric orthopedic surgeon in the and Division Chief at Rainbow Babies and Children's Hospital. He spent 9 years in practice in Boston Children's Hospital before moving to his new position in Cleveland. From his care for patients who have scoliosis or complex cervical spine conditions, to his work in reducing spinal infection rates, Dr. Glotzbecker has been constantly working to improve quality of care. Much of his research is in early-onset scoliosis and reducing spinal infections. He also played a significant role in forming clinical practice guidelines to reduce infections, which helped drop our infection rate by half. Dr. Glotzbecker is a member of multiple early onset scoliosis study groups, including the Pediatric Spine Study Group (executive committee, research council). Additionally, he is a core member of the Harms Study Group for pediatric spinal deformities. His work in research, advancing treatment outcomes and improving patient care have allowed him to be a positive force in the lives of many patients with spinal and other pediatric orthopaedic conditions.
