International Pediatric Spine Mission

Giving hope to
children worldwide.


Our Mission

The International Pediatric Spine Mission was established by Dr. Dennis Devito after working with the children of El Salvador for over 15 years.  Through the tireless efforts of Dr. Dennis Devito and his team, two trips happen each year.  Each trip, Dr. Devito works with doctors from Benjamin Bloom hospital to demonstrate and teach current techniques in treating pediatric deformity.  It is through these efforts that a strong relationship between Dr. Devito’s U.S. team and the local doctors and support staff have changed the lives of many children who may have otherwise gone untreated.  And it is through the support of the medical industry, businesses, and generous individuals that we can continue to help the children of a nation that is in such great need.

First Class Medical Care

Despite the fact that the country of El Salvador is unable to offer adequate medical care, Dr. Devito's team brings the most advanced surgeons, medical supplies, instruments, and technology available. The world's leading spinal deformity technology is donated by MEDICREA, a global leader in the manufacturing of customized implants for personalized spinal surgeries. MEDICREA has pioneered the development and production of personalized spinal osteosynthesis rods that are changing the paradigm of spinal deformity treatment.


“These kids know that we care about them and know that we are going to try and help them.”
