Think Twice Before The Knife!
Orthopedic surgery is an effective, proven form of treatment for many spine disorders… but for infants and young children diagnosed with progressive infantile scoliosis and/or early onset scoliosis, the facts suggest otherwise.
Early diagnosis of the condition followed by Early Treatment with Dr. Mehta’s EDF (elongation, derotation, flexion) casting technique specialized for children provides the opportunity to spare thousands of children and their parents from the more common “wait and watch” approach, followed by risky, repeated and costly spinal surgeries.
Early treatment with Dr. Mehta’s specialized EDF casting is medically validated with multiple peer-reviewed journal articles and clinical studies. It requires the supervision of a pediatric, orthopedic surgeon and a hospital willing to make the modest investment in a pediatric EDF casting frame. Because of its durable, medical-grade construction, precise grading and flexible features, the Noel EDF Casting Frame is the choice of leading hospitals and medical professionals globally and in the U.S.
