International Conference on Scoliosis Treatment: SOSORT


David Speers, CPO of Scheck and Siress was invited to speak at the 7th annual meeting of the International Society on Scoliosis Orthopaedic and Rehabilitation Treatment, or SOSORT, in Milan, Italy.  


Speers states,  "My involvement with SOSORT has allowed me to stay current with the latest scoliosis treatment techniques from all over the world.  I am able to apply these techniques in my daily practice in Chicago.  Being invited to speak at the conference was an honor."
