Welcome aboard, Mary Kate Gedro! We’re thrilled to have you join our team of orthotists. Looking forward to your expertise and contributions!
Mary Kate is an ABC Certified Orthotist with an undergraduate degree from the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, VA. She received a post-graduate certification in Orthotics from the Newington Certificate Program at the Newington Children’s Hospital (in conjunction with the University of Connecticut.) Following completion of her Orthotics residency at the Connecticut Children’s Medical Center in Hartford, CT she moved to Rochester, New York where she was instrumental in developing the pediatric orthotics program at the University of Rochester Medical Center and Strong Memorial Hospital.
Mary Kate is a long-time advocate of the positive impact of movement and physical activity for all ages and abilities. Optimal spinal alignment plays a major role in enjoying sports, dance, and the great outdoors. She says “What we as orthotists observe, understand, and improve today for someone with scoliosis has lifelong implications, and this forward-thinking is what I believe makes National Scoliosis Center extraordinary.”
