About Our Practice

Dr. van Bosse has been practicing pediatric orthopaedic surgery exclusively since completing his orthopaedic residency at the University of Illinois in Chicago in 1994, and his fellowship at Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children in 1995. Initially his practice was affiliated with Schneider Children's Hospital of Long Island Jewish Medical Center.

In 1998 he joined the staff at the NYU/Hospital for Joint Diseases. Dr. van Bosse enjoys treating the entire realm of pediatric orthopaedic surgery, but he has a special interest in pediatric spine deformities.

In Dr. van Bosse's practice, approximately 50% of these cases are "idiopathic", or not due to other causes. These are primarily treated by non-surgical means, but he has a busy surgical schedule of patients who need operative correction of their deformities. The other 50% are in children with other diagnoses, including neuromuscular conditions (cerebral palsy, myelomeningocele, arthrogryposis), genetic syndromes (muscular dystrophies, Prader-Willi syndrome) and congenital structural deformities of the spine. These patients are often more challenging to manage, due to involvement of more than just their spine.

As a pediatric orthopaedic surgeon, Dr. van Bosse is able to provide comprehensive orthopaedic care, and treat the spine deformity in context with other health issues. Dr. van Bosse has been instrumental in bringing the VEPTR device (or "Titanium Rib") to New York City. The VEPTR device is used to treat chest wall constriction due to rib and spine deformities in infants and young children.
