Consider the evidence

In contrast to adult or  adolescent scoliosis procedures, the risk of surgical complications and/or the need for subsequent surgical procedures for progressive infantile scoliosis is high. There is a growing body of research to support  Early Treatment with the EDF casting method as an alternative to bracing and eventual surgery for progressive infantile scoliosis.

With early diagnosis, the “Mehta Method” has the opportunity to spare thousands of children and their parents from the more common invasive approaches to treatment, which require repeated spinal surgeries. The casting method is medically validated with multiple peer-reviewed journal articles and clinical studies, and it requires the ongoing supervision of an orthopedic surgeon and a hospital willing to make the modest investment in a Noel EDF Casting Frame. 

The EDF casting technique is currently used by many of the world’s leading hospitals, including: Crawford Spine Center at the Cincinnati Children’s Medical Center; Riley Children’s Hospital in Indiana, and others.
