Playing Sports and Long-term outcome from Shilla Procedure and Definitive Instrumentation and Fusion for Janelle, Early Onset Scoliosis

Got this email from Janelle's dad earlier today.  6 yo Janelle had 120 degree early onset scoliosis we treated Dec 2010 with Shilla Technique  combined with anterior fusion (similar to growing rod), followed by postop followup, and 3 years later definitive instrumentation and fusion at age 9

Looking great Janelle!  
Dr. Lloyd Hey, 
Hey Clinic for Scoliosis and Spine Surgery.

Dr. Hey,
Good morning. Janelle just came home from her third soccer game this spring. She is doing great and having lots of fun. Her coach's daughter is another patient of yours-- Rachel.
Blessings to you and your family today.
Cort, Katrina, Janelle, Ethan, and Isaac
