Patient Stories

Patient Story: Howard, Scoliosis
With some extra patience following his scoliosis surgery, Howard is making a full recovery and wants to encourage others by sharing his story.
 

“Male patients like Howard are often in the minority when it comes to scoliosis and he felt like the treatments and resources were often geared towards girls his age. He found his inner strength and is back surfing and doing the things he loves, but it took patience and dedication!" - Craig Louer, MD
Patient Story: Cassidy, Conradi-Hunermann syndrome
 

Cassidy has had more than 40 spine surgeries - but that hasn’t stopped her from pursuing her dreams in life! Good luck in college & keep spreading your positivity!
Patient Story: Kalea, Congenital Scoliosis
 
 

Kalea, age 8, is making a speedy recovery after having spine surgery. Kalea is sharing her encouraging words for other young girls so that they may persevere!
