Columbia Pediatric Orthopedics Attends 4th International Curvy Girls Scoliosis Conference

Columbia Pediatric Orthopedics Attends 4th International Curvy Girls Scoliosis Conference on 7/9/18.  Curvy Girls is a network of peer-led support groups that reduce the emotional impact of scoliosis by empowering girls through education, mutual support and acceptance to become leaders, make healthy lifestyle choices, improve self-esteem while giving back to the Curvy Girls community”  They hold a conference every other year and we are always proud to sponsor such a great network that provides so much for our patients and families.  We even run into some of our patients at the conference as you can see below.  Dr. Vitale spoke this year on Setting the Record Straight Workshop (Open discussion regarding questions our parents have with surgery, recovery, pain and exercise)
