Clinic visits

You will have a significant number of surgeon clinic visits during your TAYLOR SPATIAL FRAME device treatment. Be sure to discuss this with the home-based team member who is helping you during treatment.

During the lengthening/correction phase, you may visit the clinic every two weeks so that your surgeon can monitor how you are progressing.

During the consolidation phase, you may visit the clinic once a month.

Office visits may range from 30 minutes to two hours, depending on what work or evaluations need to be performed.
