"I Have Scoliosis too" is a quick introduction to scoliosis and the emotions of being "different". It's a picture book geared toward the younger audience. Hope is the main character who doesn't have to make this journey alone because she meets Emma. Emma loved wearing her back brace because she said it made her back feel straighter and she felt taller wearing it, but Hope thought she was just plain crazy. The two go on their journeys together. One curve progresses while the other does not and they are there for each other. This book is a must-have for any child coping with a scoliosis diagnosis and a great beginning book to read for younger children before reading this author's detailed memoir on the topic for teens. - "This story of Hope and Emma is one that needs to be heard. All children can relate to feeling different. Stories like this one show kids that who they are is who they are meant to be and that they are not alone. This is for all kids to read. Children seeing what others experience and knowing that they are not alone in their struggles is of great importance. Children of all ages can develop scoliosis, and the side effects are not all physical. Scoliosis can lead to self-consciousness, feelings of isolation, and so many more negative feelings. When people with scoliosis, or any condition, know that there is someone like them going through something similar, it makes the world of difference ... Your 'Emma' is waiting for you with open arms. You are not alone!" - Julianne Martin, teen Leader for Curvy Girls of Connecticut, a network of peer-run scoliosis support groups for girls around the world. - "This book resonates with me on so many levels. Both my daughters are diagnosed with Scoliosis and I wish their had been a book out for them that was age appropriate at the time of diagnosis. This will be a great book for any young girl newly diagnosed." -Page King, Scoliosis Parent

This book series is an official publication of the G.I.S. (Grupo Italiano Scoliosi - Italian Scoliosis Research Group), an association of highly specialized orthopaedic surgeons which was founded about ten years ago with the aim of enhancing knowledge and research in the basic science, diagnosis and therapy of vertebral diseases. Gathering the most remarkable papers presented at the annual meeting of the G.I.S., the series represents the best of current practice and research in the field of Spinal Pathology throughout the whole of Italy. From the foreword by R.B. Winter: "The Italian Group for the Study of Scoliosis is to be commended for its systematic "attack" on subjects related to vertebral deformity. In this volume, the subject is adult scoliosis. The papers herein presented cluster around three themes: (1) the natural history of scoliosis in adults, (2) the surgical treatment of scoliosis with particular reference to the quality of correction balanced against the complications of the surgery, and (3) the benefits of treatment, particularly in regards to pain and respira tory function."

Description :


The importance of the initial diagnosis and subsequent management of scoliosis is crucial as it affects the patients future. Initial diagnosis is highly important in orientating the patient and correlating available therapeutic means to the expected results. Since the 1900s, the surgical approach to scoliosis has changed as thoughts and possibilities have evolved. Nowadays, progressive spinal deformities can be managed with specific orthopedic devices or vertebral arthrodesis surgery, depending on the age of the patient. Additionally, the type and extent of scoliotic deformity as well as on the presence of comorbidities have aided in the transforming of these methods. Arthrodesis is not considered the best treatment for younger patients; however, it becomes almost inevitable to cure important deformities of the spine in older children. Surgical fusion in patients with severe scoliosis can improve the deformity, but the spine is rendered more rigid and spinal growth is subsequently affected. The information contained in this clinical book are derived from the valuable experience of over 40 authors and co-authors from all over the world, and we hope this format will help the reader at the critical junctures to which decisions must be made. All the participants provided their own analysis, and their therapeutic choices and contributions have served this project well. This book would not exist without their efforts, diligence and commitment. This clinical book is an opportunity for every physician and surgeon dealing with children and adolescents with scoliosis to obtain updates concerning actual trends and knowledge in this field of study.

A New York Times Bestseller “I’ll be forever changed by Dr. Eger’s story…The Choice is a reminder of what courage looks like in the worst of times and that we all have the ability to pay attention to what we’ve lost, or to pay attention to what we still have.”—Oprah “Dr. Eger’s life reveals our capacity to transcend even the greatest of horrors and to use that suffering for the benefit of others. She has found true freedom and forgiveness and shows us how we can as well.” —Desmond Tutu, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate “Dr. Edith Eva Eger is my kind of hero. She survived unspeakable horrors and brutality; but rather than let her painful past destroy her, she chose to transform it into a powerful gift—one she uses to help others heal.” —Jeannette Walls, New York Times bestselling author of The Glass Castle Winner of the National Jewish Book Award and Christopher Award At the age of sixteen, Edith Eger was sent to Auschwitz. Hours after her parents were killed, Nazi officer Dr. Josef Mengele, forced Edie to dance for his amusement and her survival. Edie was pulled from a pile of corpses when the American troops liberated the camps in 1945. Edie spent decades struggling with flashbacks and survivor’s guilt, determined to stay silent and hide from the past. Thirty-five years after the war ended, she returned to Auschwitz and was finally able to fully heal and forgive the one person she’d been unable to forgive—herself. Edie weaves her remarkable personal journey with the moving stories of those she has helped heal. She explores how we can be imprisoned in our own minds and shows us how to find the key to freedom. The Choice is a life-changing book that will provide hope and comfort to generations of readers.
