This is my first message and introduction mail for this forum. Myself is Sanjay Malik and i belong to India. My son who is now 11 months, was born with scoliosis and couple of other bony deformaties.
It was noticed at the time of his birth that he does not appear to be a normal baby, there were some bony deformities visually apparent e.g. CTEV on the right / left feet and extra digit with left little finger (which was removed on 2nd day). He had weak thumb in left hand.
There was bend in the spine hence the doctors took an X-ray and did the ultrasound just to avoid any other deformity.
It was analyzed in ultrasound that the child has crossed fused kidneys on left side. on further investigation, it was found that both are working and nothing to be done for it.
After analyzing the X-Ray, they found out multiple hemi vertebras in spine in cervical, thoracic and lumber regions. with curve bending upto 55 degrees. the second X-ray (when he was 6 months old) showed little improvement and the curve reduced to 34 degree. Now it seems that it is increasing again as the he now started to sit by himself ( he is due for another x-ray in july)
Right now, we are visiting an orthopedic consultant and POP cast was applied was almost 7 months, then the surgery of the right feet is done just 2 weeks ago under supervision of this consultant. The surgery for the left feet is due in next 2 weeks time.
I leant from some web information that exercise could help, so if someone can please let me know, if they had similar case? what they did and what did helped them most?
lastly, if someone can suggest me any clinic / hospital / doctor specialized in scoliosis in INDIA.
