    Pediatric Spine Foundation

    I wasn't sure where to post this, but since this newly-formed foundation will focus largely on research (with a particular interest in fusionless techniques), I thought I'd post it in the research section. So here's a link to the Pediatric Spine Foundation's website:

    http://pediatricspinefoundation.org/

    In addition to research, PSF hopes to raise awareness about fusionless alternatives for patients requiring surgery. In fact, there are already strides being made to use tethering (VBT) on more skeletally mature patients, and eventually perhaps even on adults.

    There's too much for me to share here, so I encourage everyone to check out the website!!
