from CBC News
July 31, 2018:
A teenager from southern Ontario says her quality of life has changed dramatically after travelling to Halifax for a new spinal surgery that one surgeon says has the possibility to dramatically change the way children with scoliosis are treated. Just six patients have had the surgery so far, including 14-year-old Jessica Robb of Westover, ON, who said that within a week of the surgery, she felt a difference. "I felt a little straighter. I was still in pain a little bit after, but I felt a lot better than I did before," said the teen about the surgery nine months ago that is now allowing her to participate in more sports.
