We thought it might be nice to describe Colin 5 years after surgery. We had regular 6 month follow-ups with Dr. Krieger until he was 3 years old. On the final visit Colin was declared the "poster child" for the procedure - meaning he was doing very well. Colin leads a very normal life and the only visible result is his scar which is only noticeable when he gets a very short haircut or after a shower. We are very grateful for Children's Hospital of Los Angeles, Dr. Krieger and his team. Colin is a very active boy and has since had a scar on his forehead from running into a wall and a broken wrist after falling from the monkey bars to add to his collection. In other words, he's a pretty normal 5-year old boy.
