Patient Stories

Alexis’ Innovative Treatment to Cure Scoliosis

Alexis’ Innovative Treatment to Cure Scoliosis

Learning your child has scoliosis can be scary. When 11 year old Alexis was told she needed to have surgery to correct her condition, she was overcome with fear and requested a “mental health day” to process the news. A circumstance that seemed frightening turned to hope as Alexis and her family sought care from AdventHealth for Children’s expert orthopedic surgery team. Led by Dr. Raymund Woo, Medical Director of Pediatric Orthopedic Surgery, Alexis received an innovative, radiation free treatment that helped to increase her recovery and healing time.

Listen and learn how Alexis and her family dealt with the discovery of her condition and ultimately her treatment that now has her walking with a new found confidence.
