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."

Dear Dr. Hey,
Thank you for all of the information. I greatly appreciate it. All of your facts answer every question that I need to know for my project. You helped me way more than the internet has these past few days. I will be sure to visit the website that you gave me. I know that with all of that information I am sure to get an A on my research project. I was really excited when I found out that we were doing projects on disabilities or dieseases. The first thing that came to my mind was Scoliosis.. Of course I asked my teacher if that was something she was looking for and she was excited when I told her that I had surgery this past summer. She even wants me to be in the school newspaper! I am also looking foward to my visit back to your office, I can't wait to hear what news you have for me this time. So far it has been good. I am happy to be playing ball on my full schedual again.
p.s. I totally understand all the homework issues. I can not stand all the homework our teachers give.
