Dr. Sebastien Charosky

I graduated with a Diploma of Honor from the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Buenos Aires and after completing my residency in orthopedics and traumatology at the Dupuytren Institute, I worked together with Daniel Chopin for almost ten years at the Calot Institute of Berck sur Mer, a internationally recognized expert center for scoliosis surgery.

I am a member of the executive committees of numerous international scientific societies and am currently the French representative of Scoliosis Research. It is a pleasure to be part of the Instituto Clavel team, in which I can contribute my experience in treating the pathology of deformation of the spine.
