INTRO TO AMC
Interview with Dr. Harold van Bosse, who is an orthopedic surgeon with Shriners Hospitals for Children-Philadelphia. In this interesting series of videos, Dr. Harold van Bosse starts by giving an introduction to Arthrogryposis and what the disease really is. Dr. Harold van Bosse then discusses the philosophy of care for the disease and ends with the treatment options for arthrogryposis.
Reece was born with a rare congenital joint condition called Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita (AMC or Arthrogryposis) which occurs in two or more areas of the body. Although this condition affects her ability to use her arms and legs, Reece strives daily to overcome obstacles most children will never experience.
Brody's smile lights up a room. Before he was born, doctor's noticed that Brody's hands and feet were clubbed and there was no movement. After months of waiting, his parents learned of his condition. Fortunately, the doctors at Shriners Hospital were optimistic that although he would require major surgeries just to walk, his future ahead would be a bright one.
