Stretta coming soon?
Hello! Last I heard, the stretta had not been approved for use with children. However, I do know of a physician who is working on this. It is hoped that older kids ages 12-18 will be able to use the stretta in the near future. I would be happy to give you the contact info for the doctor so you can find out the status of the research.

doctor first!
