OI is one of the most challenging surgical problems we face in pediatric orthopedics. There are more questions than answers: what age to begin, how many bones at one time, perioperative bisphosphonate therapy, when to exchange rods, when to go non-expandable, and more. We will present a number of cases and seek input from EPOS attendees who will share their experience in a lively session.
