Re: niece has scoliosis
Hi Kara. Do they think there is a family connection? My daughter had it young too. One positive is if they need surgery they can get it out of the way before their teen years. But obviously its not nice to see a youngster suffer. I hope its not too serious a curve.
Mum to Maddy aged 15. Maddy is a patient at Great Ormond Street Hospital and had a growth rod inserted in November 2007. In March 2011 the growth rod was removed because the curve became too strong. In May 2011 Maddy had anterior release, 2 weeks traction on a Stryker Frame and then spinal fusion.
