← Back Rachel M. | Congenital Scoliosis
Congenital Scoliosis, Klippel Feil, VEPTR + Halo Traction + Posterior Spinal Fusion and Instrumentation.
This is a now 17 year old who had her last surgery 7 years ago at 10 years of age. We first met her when she was 3 years old. She was originally treated with a VEPTR growing rod which did require a few revisions throughout the years. She ultimately had a removal of her VEPTR and placement in halo gravity traction. This was prior to a planned staged cervical thoracic fusion from C2-L4.
She is doing great and back to gymnastics including flips.
