The Duncan Tree Complex Spine Care Fund

Up to 300 socio-economically disadvantaged children in Jamaica have been diagnosed with moderate to severe scoliosis and are on a waiting list for government-sponsored corrective surgery. Without desperately needed philanthropic intervention, they face the prospect of permanent disfigurement and life threatening complications.

The Duncan Tree Scoliosis Care Fund was launched in 2011 to sponsor world-class volunteer medical teams to perform corrective spine surgeries and to provide continuing medical education for the doctors, nurses, physiotherapists and technicians in Jamaica to help the better manage difficult spine cases with more confidence and better patient outcomes.

Our ongoing mission is to recruit surgeons through the Scoliosis Research Society (srs.org), secure donated surgical implants and use donated funds to facilitate corrective spine surgeries for up to 25 adolescents per year through 2017 and introduce spinal cord monitoring as a core skill in Jamaica and other nations with under resourced health care systems.
