Scoliosis Research Society 50th Anniversary Museum, here at SRS Annual Meeting! Fascinating history on the evolution of spinal deformity treatment with the great leaders who made it happen to serve children and adults better over time. It is interesting to learn how the polio outbreaks of early 1900's helped to start the scoliosis treatment revolution. It was also interesting how various surgeons tried various techniques, learned from what things did not work to develop better treatments over time. Paul Harrington did 34 iterations of his Harrington Rod, after his facet screw technique did not work. He actually would build the Harrington rod the night before with his brace tech, to use the best version for the next patient! More later from SRS. Check out the SRS website: http://www.srs.org to learn more.
