Unmatched Experience, Compassionate Care
Although we focus primarily on children and young adults with spinal deformity, the Hey Clinic serves patients of every stage of life, providing quality, compassionate care that exceeds expectations. Through personalized attention, generous appointment times, and strong emphasis on patient education, Dr. Hey’s approach takes into consideration a patient’s physical, emotional and social needs. Dr. Hey and his caring team work closely with each patient, family and local physician, to develop a plan customized to his/her needs while also taking into account the patient’s physical, emotional and social needs. Through our custom information system, we build a comprehensive database with all of our patients’ images and create immediate documentation geared to better serve each patient.
At the Hey Clinic, we are committed to treating you, not just you or your loved one’s spine. By embracing a comprehensive approach to healing, our team fosters sincere relationships with our patients, creating the best possible experience.

17 year old Corbyn – underwent scoliosis surgery for a 50 degree T6-L2 curve and a 5 cm trunk shiftThree days after her scoliosis surgery, Corbyn, a 17-year-old dancer and athlete from Granite Quarry, NC, was sitting up taller and straighter in her hospital room. With the support of her family, Corbyn was preparing for her two-hour trip back home. This sparked our interest in how often and how far families will travel for the right medical care. For several years, Corbyn’s local doctor monitored her growing curve. However, it was not until Corbyn’s mother noticed her daughter’s rapidly increasing trunk shift that she sought out a second opinion and came across the Hey Clinic website. They initially made the trip because of Dr. Hey’s education and training, but chose to remain under his care after the encouraging words and compassionate care of the Hey Clinic team. Shortly after her surgery, Corbyn and her mother were already amazed by her significantly straightened posture. As a high school senior, whose dancing and cheerleading required Corbyn to find unique ways to center her balance, her family is very excited about how her surgery will transform her sense of balance. Everyday at the Hey Clinic, we are fortunate to meet families who will make the trip to Raleigh, NC. We are grateful to always be inspired by families like Corbyn’s who remain optimistic and will travel the distance to receive medical care from Dr. Hey and our team.
