Luke Macyszyn, MD, of Newport Beach, DISC Sports & Spine Center, collaborated with the Barbie brand to develop a doll with scoliosis. 

The doll, Chelsea, features a removable back brace and is part of larger efforts to add Barbie dolls with different skin colors, body sizes and disabilities, according to a Feb. 1 news release from Mattel. Chelsea is the youngest in the Barbie family.

Dr. Macyszyn joined DISC as a physician partner in December. He will play a key role in DISC's upcoming ASC and specializes in minimally invasive treatment for complex spinal disorders.
