Abstract

In selected patients a method of rod insertion without fusion combined with use of a full-time external orthotic support, e.g., the Milwaukee brace, is effective. The orthopedic surgeon confronted with young children who have curves that do not respond to conservative treatment alone or in which bracing is contraindicated should find this procedure particularly suitable. The method allows for the expression of full growth potential while maintaining curve correction.
