How can we care for scoliosis and kyphosis and spondylolisthesis better with conservative care like physical therapy, high-tech scoliosis braces, exercise and other techniques? What can be done to improve surgical care, and understand choices for surgery, learning from those around the world? How can we learn from aviation and from Deming's principles of "Standard Work" to constantly improve spine and all healthcare?

Greetings to Olivia's Grandma in Buffalo.... and this week in review
I wanted to start of today's blog with a special "hello" to Olivia's grandma in Buffalo, NY. Olivia had her adolescent idiopathic scoliosis fixed with us for her double curve back about 6 weeks ago, and is doing extremely well! Her grandma also has scoliosis and kyphosis, and has followed Olivia's surgery and recovery closely. Olivia was back to school a few weeks ago, and is going to England in March for a big school field trip. She really likes her new improved posture.
More later.... need to go see another patient in clinic. Dr. Lloyd Hey, Hey Clinic for Scoliosis and Spine Surgery
