Someone knows about this technique? With only replace the discs by others with the same height in both sides, the spine keep straight? Itís only used in lumbar scoliosis? Someone know why?

I would guess, that it would be too hard to get to that part of the spine in any other areas, too much critical stuff in the way. Just my guess, though.;)

Hey I like that one. It seems far off but it looks potentially promising.

Gracias.
