Hi, I’m Rebecca, and this is Julia, and we just finished our first session with Dr. Hersh. It’s been an amazing experience. This has been a miracle for her. She, Julia, has an 80 degree curve, and we’ve definitely been able to reduce it significantly from being here as well as having some dietitian changes as well from Dr. Spitz, who’s been absolutely amazing.
Julia had a growing-rod surgery done several years ago. She had revisions done every year, and finally had them removed. And that’s when we knew we had to do something to help with her scoliosis. We knew that our only other option besides coming here was to have surgery, which was not an option for us. I am extremely grateful that we came here because it’s definitely helped a lot and set us in the right direction.
Also, Julia is a 14-year-old girl, and she’s actually on the lower scale of weight. Luckily, Dr. Spitz is able to set us in the right direction as far as nutrition goes. Before, she was receiving just feeding her Nutrin in her G-tube. And it definitely wasn’t enough for her, significant calories and nutrition. Now I think we’re on the right direction.
