Scoliosis is treated with modernized approach in Turkey


Vertebral Body Tethering is a surgical treatment for children with idiomatic scoliosis that was recently approved by the FDA in 2019. During the procedure, surgeons place screws on the convex side (the side that curves out) of the spine curve. A rope-like device, called a tether, is then secured along the side of the vertebrae.
