Globus Medical is dedicated to improving the lives of children with scoliosis by educating patients and their families, partnering with the global surgical community, and providing innovative, best-in-class products.
What Is Scoliosis?
Scoliosis is defined as a sideways curvature of the spine. When a healthy spine is viewed from the back, it appears to be straight. However, patients with scoliosis have curves that look like a “C” (one curve) or an “S” (two curves) when viewed on an X-ray.
What solutions are available?
Depending on the severity of the scoliosis, the patient may be prescribed a bracing or casting option. If surgical treatment is needed, Globus offers a variety of innovative solutions for pediatric scoliosis correction.
Patients should always speak with their healthcare provider to determine which treatment plan is appropriate for them.
Globus Medical is a leading medical device manufacturer with the goal of improving the quality of life for patients with musculoskeletal disorders. We are inspired by the needs of these patients and by the surgeons and healthcare providers who treat them.
