Fall 2012


Dear Physician Colleagues,


It is again my pleasure to present to you the Cottage Children’s Hospital magazine, a biannual publication that enables you to meet our physicians and learn about our programs.


In this issue, Dr. Sean Early and Dr. Mike Maguire discuss commonly encountered pediatric orthopedic problems, including hip dysplasia and childhood scoliosis. Dr. Drew Kelts provides a thorough review of the diagnosis and management of cyclic vomiting syndrome in children. Finally, Dr. Dan Greenfield and Dr. David Slomiany summarize significant advances in childhood cancer therapy.


I hope you will take the opportunity to read and enjoy this publication. Our goal is to serve the children and families of the Central Coast and surrounding areas by providing highly skilled, compassionate care, delivered by the most comprehensive multidisciplinary pediatric team in the region. Please call us any time we can assist you in the care of your patients.
