    I just tried and failed to find what the material is in that implant. I would have to pull more references.

    Maybe someone else knows.

    I mean I have only heard reference to the one case type (T curve fused above a certain point with a straight enough lumbar) as being able to be stable for life. More case types could easily have...

    juveniles are a very small population. Maybe you mean adolescents? If so, we have decades of data on fusion. T fusions that stay above about T12 or L1 and that drive enough straightness in...

    I live in NC. No rational parent when faced with a medical consensus denies their child care. There are some objectively irrational parents who think they have a choice but they don't.

    Surgery for my kids was not my choice. I think a court would have stepped in had I refused it for them. There is a medical consensus on fusion for large, progressing T curves in AIS. My role was...

    You make some great points. I completely agree with you, Tina.

    Doctors on Doctor Radio mention Schroth from time to time and I think it is ignorant. Schroth has been studied for decades on the...

    I apologize for speaking for you on the point of needing PT for life. I do think that others think that, though.

    I hope I have never denied a subjective observation from somebody. All such...

    Schroth does NOT have any results for anyone and the proof of that is the LACK of evidence for efficacy despite having years and tens of thousands of patients to prove it works. At some point, the...

    Hi. I don't recall the exchange but I doubt I doubted your impression of how your hips looked straighter after PT. PT can have some improvement mainly using muscle to pull some straightness without...

    I second Ed's and Linda's suggestion that you obtain all the radiologist's reports. They are the only people who can competently review your images. If they don't remark about something then it is...

    Hi Donna. I am really sorry to hear of your pan.

    I think there is evidence PT helps with pain.

    I don't think there is evidence that Schroth is better for pain than other PT modalities. I don't see how the cost can possibly be justified.

    Linda can answer your questions. In re blindness, she can correct me if I am wrong but I think that is due to incorrect or prolonged positioning in the prone position.
