I am thinking now that Aleks has always had some degree of congenital scoliosis since he has had pectus excavatum since birth and now it appears to be gone - chest looks completely normal with no swelling. He was the first to notice and is very pleased. He's looking forward to his increased height and straight back! Thanks for all your hard work Dr. Hey.
