Maggie comes back for her 6 week follow-up looking great after "U-Rod" surgery for Early Onset Scoliosis

Well, it is about time to get back to the blog... so sorry for my long delay.

One of the many highlights from the last couple we

made it hard for her Shilla hardware to hold onto her spine. She was gradually falling into significant kyphosis, which also caused heks was seeing Maggie back in the clinic with her mom. She was back for her six week follow-up for her revision early onset scoliosis (EOS) surgery after
Shilla Procedure. Maggie has a tough problem with osteoporosis, which
ardware prominence to
the skin. I revised her
using a special new "U-Rod" technique, using sublaminar fixation at multiple levels using FiberWire. We were able to get a really nice correction of her deformity, and she is now doing very well. She's quite a bit taller, and very happy with her new posture.

She was kind enough to make me a personalized
Thank You Card, which is shown below. She's quite a good artist! Thanks Maggie for the thoughtful card!!
