Vertebral Body Tethering (VBT) Part 1 & 2

I am excited to share a surgical technique video on Vertebral Body Tethering (VBT) for treatment of a double major scoliotic curvature. I filmed this as part of an Instructional Course Lecture I chaired for AAOS on VBT. The procedure is separated into two parts as it was performed bilaterally (from two sides). VBT is a non-fusion surgical treatment for scoliosis that allows for maintained flexibility of the spine.
