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."
