This content was provided by Dr. Rinsky "As a pediatric orthopaedist practicing for over 38 years at a University teaching hospital, I rely on my experience , as well as that of my many colleagues both here in CA, as well as throughout the world to inform my treatment choices. As a general rule, I believe in trying to allow for the simplest approach that will work, encouraging Mother Nature to assist us in deformity correction. Thus, I do not always go for "the newest" or "splashiest" choice when patience and time will be sufficient."
