← Back Jake T. | Juvenile Idiopathic Scoliosis

Juvenile Idiopathic Scoliosis, MAGEC + Posterior Spinal Fusion and Instrumentation.

This is a now 13 year old who we have followed since he was 5 years old. He started with a 33 degree curve and initially tried a brace. The curve continued to progress over the years. At the age of 9, his curve had progressed to 64 degrees. At that time, he had a MAGEC insertion. He had MAGEC lengthenings over the next couple of years until the age of 12 where he proceeded to have a MAGEC removal and posterior spinal fusion and instrumentation. He is back to all activities including basketball.
