Carole was diagnosed with scoliosis as a young girl. Her parents were not interested in the invasive surgical options available at the time.
When she came to see Dr. HoSun Hwang she was beginning to experience back pain, which intensified after periods of exercise or activity. Even climbing the stairs and siting in the bleachers at her son's football games were beginning to cause more intense pain.
I knew I needed to see a doctor that would help relieve this pain and understood my condition. That's when I went to see Dr. Hwang.
Healthy and active, Dr. Hwang determined that Carole was a good candidate for some of the newer spine treatments available for patients with curvature of the spine. More advanced implants and procedures for deformity correction make treatment options much less invasive than when Carole was a young girl.
Following treatment, Carole is now able to climb to the top of the stairs and sit comfortably through her son's football games.
"I am living proof that the results of that surgery and the care I received at Houston Methodist Willowbrook were spectacular."
