Charlotte Taylor Spatial Frame Inspection

Charlotte, a teen patient who has been under my care for a rare disorder since early childhood was recently featured in a story by ABCNews.com. At the age of 13, Charlotte underwent a limb-lengthening procedure which required her to wear a large spatial frame that made it impossible to wear regular pants. Charlotte decided to create her own clothing with snaps on the side rather than wear tear-away sweatpants.

Charlotte’s procedure was successful and allowed her to participate in sports and other activities. Her experience motivated her to later launch “No Guts No Glory” (www.crnogutsnoglory.com), a clothing line that offers options for teens who have to wear external frames.
