Conference Speech.


The Paediatric Spine Research group was formed in December 2002 to perform high quality research into the prevention and management of spinal disorders, with an emphasis on scoliosis. The research team has received grants of approx $400K and is currently supervising 4 post graduate students, 2 undergraduate students and a yearly clinical fellow. The group has been active for just over 5 years and has successfully built collaborative bridges between the scientific and research expertise at QUT, and the clinical skills and experience of the spinal orthopaedic surgeons at the Mater Children’s Hospital in Brisbane. This paper presents findings from a selection of published clinical research papers produced from a detailed database of patients who had endoscopic anterior scoliosis correction.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
