Hello Carlos, Are the growth hormones supposed to help with scoliosis or is it for another reason? I wasn't familiar with the use of growth hormones in treating scoliosis - I'm wondering if it is something the folks in Shriners Mexico are researching. Does your daughter wear a brace also? Good luck

As a matter of fact she need to grow and the endocrinological doctor indicated the treatmen with growth hormones. The spinal surgeon aproved that treatment. They will check her evolution toward an spinal surgery.

Is not a direct treatment for scoliosis.

I whish to know some similar experiences.
