Dr. Kelsey Walsh joins us to break down Adult Scoliosis and show how robotics and improved technology have improved patient outcomes.
Adult Scoliosis is a condition that impacts over 6 million people in the United States. While many cases are mild, others have a substantial effect on the way impacted individuals are able to do life. The unnatural, side-to-side curves that define scoliosis can be as mild as 10 degrees or as severe as 100 degrees, or more. As such, you can imagine how this could lead to immense pain and a decreased lack of function.
With so many Americans dealing with this condition, we’ve asked neurosurgeon Dr. Kelsey Walsh to join us and educate us on Adult Scoliosis.
