    This is a closed Facebook group on tethering. You have to ask to join. (I am not on it.) They will know if some surgeon is tethering congenital cases.

    I hope others reply also but here is what I think is the case.



    I suspect every case is different so there may be no answer to this question. All you can do is pick an experienced surgeon. ...

    Rods break because the fusion did not happen either in time before fatigue built up in the rod or at all. I think it is relatively rare in kids. I suspect virtually all cases are in adults.

    If doing just discectomies or osteotomies with or without temporary support worked in adults I think we would know that by know.

    Our orthodontist said if my girls didn't wear their retainers, the teeth might move back within a week. That is my memory though it was a long time ago.

    Can you give us your feel for the numbers?

    If they do a discectomy they need to fuse the vertebra, no? I thought the point was to avoid fusion.

    Thanks for this, Burdle. Can you post the FB page for people who want more information? I would have to search for it.

    When you say quite a few, how many do you mean?

    How many mature people...

    Hopefully Dustin has run away, perhaps screaming, from the chiros towards a board certified pediatric orthopedic surgeon and a trained orthotist.

    Thought experiment for Dustin

    Think about ALL the training you received on scoliosis to become a DPT. I am guessing it is little to none.

    Now imagine a person who either got NO training in scoliosis or the training was...

    It is the exact opposite of seasoned. There may still only be a literal handful of adults that are tethered. The FB group would be able to tell you nearly exactly I suspect.
