    Shriner's SLC Casting

    This is our first post here.

    My wife and I are taking our daughter to Shriner's in Utah on the 23rd of this month to have her fitted with the mehta cast by Dr. D'Astous. Our daughter has a 58 degree curve and the brace that she wears isn't holding it. Could someone share there experience at this hospital with us? What can we expect?

    Thank you,
    Nate & Kelly

    Hi Nate and Kelly,

    Have you checked out www.infantilescoliosis.org? There are lots of parents there whose children have been helped by casting. In fact, many of them see the same doctor at Shriners SLC and speak VERY highly of him.

    Best of luck to you!
