Well, I wish we could find out how many patients have been tethered and in what age ranges.

I think tethering should be considered for mature patients to try to halt progression and to straighten the lumbar if possible to avoid needing a fusion there.

I think more doctors should be trained and they should take the lumbar kids first and then the other kids and then the adults. I remain a little shocked how those mature women got tethered ahead of a kid.
