I enjoy sharing stories such as this one, which help to underline the many ways that pediatric orthopedists such as myself can improve the lives of young athletes.
Watch the video and you’ll see how the young patient in question managed to excel despite a significant curvature in his spine, a condition known as adolescent scoliosis. With the help of digital mapping and modern surgical techniques, the patient underwent a precision orthopedic surgical procedure and came out on the other side with improved symmetry – and greater comfort.
It’s just one example of the positive effects that expert orthopedic care can have on young athletes and injured children here in San Diego and across the country.
If your child has suffered an injury or disease that has left a lasting mark on their bone development or musculature, it’s wise to speak with an experienced orthopedist sooner rather than later. Contact my practice today for a full diagnostic session.
