New technology to decrease scoliosis surgery among children

A new technology to reduce the number of scoliosis surgeries children have has been approved by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (Nice), a report by Engineering and Technology Magazine stated on January 28.

A remote control option to adjust spinal rod implants is now available for children, helping to prevent the need for multiple operations to adjust the rods that are used to correct the curvature as a child grows. With the new technology, the adjustment can now be done in an outpatient clinic, allowing a child to avoid a prolonged hospital stay. The technology is being considered as effective and to cause less pain for children ages two to 11 years old.

Sadly, scoliosis is a congenital birth defect linked to pregnant mothers who use Depakote. If your child was born with this birth defect due to what you believe was your use of Depakote, a lawyer from Williams Hart may be able to help you get the financial compensation you need for these often expensive treatments.
