This is where Dr. Hey shares his thoughts regarding recent patients he has cared for, scoliosis and kyphosis research and literature, and shares photos and case summaries to benefit patients, their families/ friends, and folks in healthcare. Dr. Hey was hit by a car at age 16, and spent 3 months in the hospital, with 11 surgeries. This experience changed his life, as he experienced God's compassion and healing through others, now encouraging others to "go and do likewise."

Little Quinna w/ Rett's Syndrome Postop from Scoliosis Instrumentation and Fusion
Quinna X-Ray Today at Hey Clinic
I just left the exam room with little Quinna, who is growing like a weed! Her surgery blog entry can be found by clicking here, and her 3 month Postop Blog can be found by clicking here. We did scoliosis surgery for her a few months ago, and she is doing just great. She now can sit up straight in her wheelchair, is smiling widely, and does not appear to be having any back pain. Her postop X-Rays look quite good. This is good example of a younger child, even with neurologic involvement, can sometimes be treated with definitive instrumentation and fusion rather than growing rods or Shilla.
