Healthy Living: Correcting Scoliosis
Surgeons have been correcting severe scoliosis for decades.
They straightened the spine, but didn’t have the ability to correct the rotation, so a telltale rib hump still protruded after surgery.
Today in Healthy Living, one doctor devised a way to address all of that in one operation.
Dr. Rovner is now working with two companies to improve the hardware for his technique.
His hope is that other surgeons will be trained to use this procedure to get better outcomes for patients.
