I am trying to apply my son ssi benefits. My son is 13 year
My son Benjamin is 13 year old boy from American Samoa with a complicated history of bilateral slipped capital femoral epiphyses (SCFE). He underwent surgical intervention in June 2015 with in situ pinning of his left hip and prophylactic pinning of his right hip. In July 2015 he required additional surgery for the right intertrochanteric fracture which was successfully treated with open reduction and internal fixation. In November of 2016, he had progression of his left SCFE resulting in further surgical intervention including a valgus osteotomy. Benjamin will require close orthopedic follow up and monitoring to prevent further complication such as avascular necrosis. He will most likely require additional surgical intervention to his right hip in the 1 to 2 years. … read more
