Dr. Stefan Parent presents to Federation of General Practitioners of Quebec

Posted on 05/29/13

Dr Stefan Parent recently participated to the latest meeting of the Fédérations des Médecins Omnipraticiens du Québec (FMOQ.org) (Federation of General Practitioners of Quebec) and presented a talk on “Scoliosis: how to screen scoliosis and what to say to the parents.” The talk discussed mainly the different screening methods and the latest treatment algorithm for patients with Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis. During the presentation, different screening methods were discussed including the Scolioscreen device which should allow every general practitioner to perform scoliosis screening in their private office or in the hospital setting and identify patients requiring transfer to a specialized center.
