Estimados Miembros de la SOSORT,

Nuestra reunión anual en Katowice ha finalizado, y quiero felicitar a todos ustedes por el gran éxito que este evento ha tenido. La calidad científica de la conferencia fue probablemente la más alta que jamás hemos tenido en nuestras reuniones, y esto depende de ustedes y de su activa participación. Estamos creciendo, atrayendo más investigadores y más clínicos, volviéndonos más fuertes y ayudando a esparcir el conocimiento sobre la ortopedia y el tratamiento rehabilitador de la escoliosis alrededor del mundo.

Nuestro principal objetivo para el próximo año será alcanzar el Factor de Impacto para nuestra revista científica “Scoliosis Journal”, exitosamente liderada por el Dr. Theo Grivas. Esperamos con ansias poder contar con la  contribución de todos ustedes apoyando con investigaciones originales que ayuden a incrementar el número de publicaciones. ¡Esto realmente nos ayudaría mucho!

También me gustaría que me escribieran sugiriendo ideas o objetivos que tengan para la Sociedad que podemos planear para alcanzarlos durante los próximos 1-2 años. Me refiero a algo muy práctico y crucial para la SOSORT, pero también algo realizable que se pueda llevar a cabo. Será mi trabajo y responsabilidad llevar acabo la sugerencia propuesta. Gracias una vez más por su apoyo y por darme la oportunidad de servir una vez más a las Sociedad como Presidente. Es un gran honor para mí.

Scoliosis Journal

Sample image

Scoliosis Journal and Spinal Disorders http://www.scoliosisjournal.com/
The official journal of our society is now indexed in Pub Med. Therefore I would like to invite you to submit your next paper to our new journal in order to support our work. Well-documented studies on conservative and surgical management of scoliosis are still needed in order to balance the therapeutic approach to this disease. As an example, among 2000 articles published on 'scoliosis' in the last 10 years (Medline, 1996-2005), more than 800 (40%) have focused on 'surgery' but only 20 (1%) on 'prevention and control.' Scoliosis will provide a forum to fill this gap, to facilitate international communication of professionals and, finally, to improve the care of patients living with scoliosis.

 

Scientific Events

May 18, 2017! The 4th Annual Non Operative Treatment of Childhood Scoliosis CME is an opportunity to learn about state of the art, non-operative treatment of scoliosis across the ages. In recent years we have gained a new appreciation for, and experience with Mehta casting in children with infantile and juvenile scoliosis. Experts in the field will share theory and hands on practical tips in Mehta or EF casting. Patients with juvenile and adolescent scoliosis also have vastly expanded palette of treatment options including Schroth physical therapy and Rigo Cheneau bracing. Experts from Columbia’s Center for the Conservative Treatment of Scoliosis and visiting lecturers will share their experience in presentations and will demonstrate best practices in workshop settings.
The course will review the current state of knowledge about bracing, updated recently by the pivotal BRAIST trial. We are excited to have one of the authors of this trial, Dr. Stuart Weinstein here to speak on scoliosis and bracing. Participants will emerge with a renewed appreciation of the three dimensional aspects of scoliosis and the full gamut of modern treatment options. Highlights will include presentations by patients and families of patients who have successfully been treated with casting, Schroth therapy and Rigo- Cheneau bracing. The faculty and speakers are the most experienced in the field, bringing expertise in bracing, casting, and therapy for childhood scoliosis.
