Has anyone's child gone through VBT surgery?
My daughter is 12 and was recently found to have a 56 degree curve and qualifies for the VBT surgery. I know its a newer surgery and just recently passed FDA in 2019. I am nervous as everyone is. Mostly because it is a newer procedure but is non-invasive. I am concerned about the long-term effects. Sounds like there is a chance the cord could break and a 10 – 20% chance of another surgery to take place. Please tell me more about the experience, post surgery, pain level, comfortability, scarring, and anything else that would be helpful to know.
