Kosta's Story

From Kosta’s Family:

Meet our Kosta. He was diagnosed with progressive infantile scoliosis at 17 months, a rare diagnosis of the spine that can, if untreated, be fatal.

When we learned of Kosta’s curving spine we were terrified. Luckily for us, we had the ability to go any distance to pursue world-class care he deserved. We were able to move 5,500 miles from London to Los Angeles so that Kosta could be treated at Orthopaedic Institute for Children (OIC) with the care of Dr. Anthony Scaduto.

Though a surgeon, Dr. Scaduto recommended a non-invasive Mehta casting approach. We are thrilled to report that after just four years of treatment, only a minor curve remains in Kosta’s spine, with the promise of additional improvement as he continues to grow. Our son will stand tall for life thanks to OIC, Dr. Scaduto. This means everything to us.
