Dr. Rand is a senior spine surgeon at New England Baptist Hospital joining the staff in 1988. In addition to his role at NEBH, he serves as Director of Spinal Deformity (Scoliosis) Service at NEBH and at the Camer/Rand Foundation for Spinal Deformity Research.
Dr. Rand started his career at Children’s Hospital in Boston as a pediatric orthopedic and adult scoliosis surgeon. His practice now concentrates almost exclusively on adults with spinal deformity (scoliosis) and revision spine surgery. Dr. Rand follows adults with Scoliosis whether surgery is needed or not, and serves as a resource for their overall scoliosis management. Managing adult Scoliosis requires attention to spinal balance as part of their surgery. Patients needing revision spinal surgery frequently require spinal reconstruction to regain spinal balance incorporating the same principles used in the care of adults with Scoliosis. Dr. Rand’s practice focuses on these two populations as they incorporate the same treatment principles.
