← Back Anonymous 14 | Neuromuscular Scoliosis

This is a 14 year old boy who was diagnosed with neuromuscular scoliosis secondary to GMFCS IV Cerebral Palsy. At baseline, he uses a motorized wheelchair to ambulate. He has been followed by Dr. Vitale since he was 10 years old. At that time, he had a 20 degree lumbar curve. Therefore, he was at first treated with a brace. Unfortunately, his curve grew 90 degrees over the next two years thus requiring a fusion procedure. He was fused from T2 to his pelvis and at his six-week visit, was noted to have significant improvement in his ability to sit!
