“Scoliosis: A Guide for Children and Their Families”
Scoliosis: A Guide for Children and Their Families—Summary
We are writing this book to provide useful information about this common condition. My hope is that the information presented here answers your questions, makes you feel better, and equips you to make the best decisions possible regarding optimum treatment.
During the 20 years of my practice as an orthopaedic surgeon, I have seen a number of significant changes in this field. We have a greater understanding of the nature of scoliosis. We also have a much wider variety of treatment options available to our patients—including non-operative conservative treatment—and our treatments are more successful than ever.
I am deeply indebted to Amber Sentell Mizerik for her help in the planning, organization, and writing of this book. An expert Physician Assistant who has been with me throughout my practice, her experience and insight have greatly enriched the content of this book.
