My 10 year old son will have spinal fusion surgery on January 14th. He broke his collarbone back in October and had it plated. He then started to have neck pain and was diagnosed with torticollis. After seeing several different doctor and a physical therapist finally, a doctor did an MRI. It showed that his occiput was fused to his C1 vertebrae. The pediatric orthopedist noticed that an Xray from several years ago (for adenoids) showed that it was fused back then. The trauma he experienced in October aggravated the congenital problem. He will have a plate put in and a bone graft from his hip. Please wish us luck!
