Hi! I was wondering if anyone knows of a good website with information regarding the growth rod surgery for scoliosis. All I seem to find is info on full fusions (I already know about that). Any help would be great.
Thanks, Emily

Emily...

I don't think there are any specific websites, but here are some references:

Hi Emily,

You can go to http://www.veptr.com

This is a good site for the newly FDA approved device. I don't know of any specific sites for the traditional growing rod procedure.
