Programs

DTF Complex Spine Project DTF's Scoliosis Care Fund (SCF), continues to serve as a bridge between young people with scoliosis who can't afford titanium spinal implants and spinal cord monitoring. With our corporate partners Medtronic (the world's largest medical device manufacturer) and NuVasive Clinical Services who provided free spinal cord monitoring services; DTF Scoliosis Care Fund operates at Cornwall Regional and Kingston Public Hospitals, in Jamaica, W.I., and at Southern Philippines Medical Center in the Philippines. Year-to-date DTF's SCF has affected the lives of over 103 young people, their families by providing free scoliosis surgery to young people with spine deformities with curvatures ranging between 50 to 120 degree. These families consistently express concerns about not being able to afford deformity surgery with an average cost of over $200,000 USD if performed in the U.S. Over 12 million people worldwide suffer from varying degrees of scoliosis and over 90,000 Jamaicans and more than 3 million Filipinos have the disease, with thousands currently on a waiting list for scoliosis surgery. Duncan Tree will now be operating at Princess Elizabeth Hospital in Trinidad & Tobago.
