As a small child, I began to develop severe  scoliosis,  a curvature of the spine that caused
the contortion of my torso (chest).  Being born an upper amputee, I was predisposed to this condition.  
Eventually the curve of my spine increased to 80-degrees.
At age seven, I had  spinal fusion surgery  to stop the curve.  
During this surgical procedure, two metal rods, called Harrington rods  were attached/fused to vertebrae in my back.
These rods were designed to hold my spine in place and prevent it from curving further.
The surgery was a success, and further curvature was prevented.
