Unfortunately, many people have an underlying allergy or hypersensitivity to the metal alloys found in the hardware used in (scoliosis) surgery. This blood test will reveal if you or your child is prone to this allergy to commonly used surgical hardware. This test can be an important predictor of allergy when deciding upon scoliosis surgery, or when post-surgery patients experience ongoing back and joint pain that is not responsible to conventional pain medications. This test will identify allergies that may be helped with conventional antihistamine therapy, or with natural histamine regulation supplements and lifestyle interventions.
