Here are pictures of Ian before his first cast and his back after his first cast. AMAZING results if you ask me. The rib hump is totally gone!

43 degrees

After his first cast!


He's now 6 degrees in his second cast and the rotation is improving as well. Thank you Shriners!

He is 17 months old. He is now in his second cast. He had about 45 degrees of rotation and they are really focusing on that now. He's at 6 degrees in his cast right now. I am thrilled with the results.

Sealy, I owe it all to you! I never would have known about serial casting if it weren't for you...thanks so much for guiding me in the right direction.

Not only is that a beautiful correction (it makes me beam; can't imagine how happy you must be) but it's great to see what good SSo is doing!

Thanks Jen ! :squeeze: Hopefully, one day serial casting for progressive infantile scoliosis will be the gold standard !


THANK GOD for forums like SSO.... I'd be lost without them.

I also thank God for forums like this one. It's amazing how many people are finding out about the serial casting and VEPTR procedures via internet message boards and chat groups.

I guess it does help when a parent has some information that they cn go with .. otherwise you are going to take it that the doctor / consultant knows what he is doing .. which isn't always the case.

Hopefully in years to come this can all be stopped before it ever gets too bad.
