The Treatment of Progressive Early Onset Spinal Deformities: A Multi-Center Outcome Study

Research Question:
What can we learn from scoliosis patients who are followed overtime after treatment?

Basic Study Information

The purpose of this study is to examine the treatment, both surgical and non-surgical, of patients with any form of early onset scoliosis. Such treatment may include the use of growth friendly devices that are surgically or magnetically lengthened; or the use of serial body casting or bracing, or observation. Outcomes examined will be what can be seen physically on the patient and on x-ray, as well as parent perception of how the treatment effects their child with the use of a health-related quality of life (HRQOL) questionnaire.
