"Children are not small adults"

/

This is the philosophy of David M. Farrington, the famous Spanish physician. Dr. Farrington is the president of the Spanish Society of Pediatric Orthopedics, and is also called the national encyclopedia in this area.

He believes that only specialized training before practice can make a good specialist. He himself graduated from the University of Seville, and after graduation he devoted his life to practice, traveling around the world.

It is impossible to get an education once and forever. “The technological revolution, which is fundamentally changing modern medicine, means that we must also train continuously.” One of the areas that Dr. Farrington pays special attention to is the reduction of the negative impact of ionizing radiation.

Five years ago, he was the first in Europe to perform Vertebral Body Tethering. It is a new cutting edge fusionless technique to treat scoliosis. Thanks to Medical Help, this pediatric orthopedics expert can be consulted from anywhere in the world through the Video Consultation and continue treatment at his clinic in Seville.

Success stories: scoliosis treatment 

During 2019, 3 children have been cured from scoliosis thanks to Medical Help and Spanish medicine.

Scoliosis is a medical condition in which a person's spine has a sideways curve which is usually "S"- or "C"-shaped over three dimensions. It most commonly occurs between the ages of 10 and 20 (cerebral palsy and muscular dystrophy may also cause it).

Scoliosis does not typically cause problems, no pain is present. Nevertheless, it is better to treat scoliosis in order to prevent the development of deformation, which in the future will cause harm to health and development. 

Surgery is usually recommended for curves with a high likelihood of progression. With the "spinal fusion", they fuse together two or more vertebrae so that they heal into a single, solid bone. Surgical fixation can prevent further progression and deterioration.

 

There are other solutions as well. Medical Help offers various treatments for scoliosis. Experienced orthopedists will offer the option that is suitable for your child. Together, we can create new success stories.
