Spinal Fusion Surgery
Your child’s care team has raised the possibility of spinal fusion for your child’s neuromuscular scoliosis, and now you (and your child, if they are able) are considering whether to proceed. There are many factors to consider, as a family and with your child’s surgeon and team. It is a multi-step process to help you make a decision that works with your care goals. Take your time with this decision. It could take weeks, or even months, to go through the process. You may learn new things at certain points that make you want to re-think your prior ideas. That’s okay. The goal is to feel that you have done the best you can for your child.
