Stanford surgeon studies how to improve scoliosis treatment
Scoliosis is a common condition in which the spine twists and curves sideways instead of running straight down the center of the back.
More than 1 in every 100 adolescents is diagnosed with scoliosis, but it can also occur in younger children. A large spinal curve can cause deformities, pain and muscle spasms, and can even hinder breathing by limiting space for the rib cage and lungs to expand.
Stanford pediatric orthopedic surgeon John Vorhies, MD, who sees scoliosis patients through the Spine Program at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford, is conducting several research projects to improve treatments for these kids and teens.
