    Hi again,

    My son goes to Shriners in Philly, BUT I do know a few families who see Dr. Sturm and they are very pleased. He is chief of staff of Chicago Shriners Hospital so I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him just on that fact alone. I know he's worked closely with Dr. Betz on a few cases too. If you want, I can try to dig up the e-mail addresses for his patients.

    Best of luck!

    Casting

    You might also want to try the Yahoo group Infantile Scoliosis if you want to go the casting route. There are a number of parents on that site that are going through casting right now. We have a son 28 months who is in his 7th cast we go to SLC shriners with Dr. D'Astous.

    There is a parents' organization devoted to infantile scoliosis which I'm surprised is not better known here:
