My child would have faced severe deformity or a very early and painful death, if not for the work of the ISOP. Dr. Min Mehta’s method of early treatment for Infantile Scoliosis is directly responsible for saving my son. The ISOP needs funding so that all children diagnosed with this condition can get this life saving treatment.
Thousands of babies and young children around the world currently have this condition, and very few doctors are trained to treat it. This is literally a cure, for the most difficult orthopedic condition to treat in very young children. EDF casting is a non-surgical, safe and inexpensive treatment, but a very small percentage of the medical community even knows it exists. This grant will help get the word out to the medical community, train more doctors, and immediately begin saving babies lives.
