View Full Version : Surgeons closer to home

03-18-2005, 03:42 PM
Hi, I am 52 years old and have a 62 degrees lower lumbar curve and have had hip and leg pain for almost 3 years with lots of nerve blocks that weren't successful. My doctor has told me I need to have scoliosis surgery. My doctor here has referred me to Lawrence Lenke in St. Louis. Has anybody here heard of him?

I would also like to know if anyone has had surgery with a doctor in South Carolina, North Carolina or Georgia. I sure would like to stay closer to home in Charleston, SC if I could.

Dr. Lloyd Hey of the Hey Clinic in Raleigh, NC would be my recommendation. His office is right beside the Duke Raleigh Hospital. He did my surgery in Feb. 2003 at age 42 and I couldn't be happier with the results.

Kindest Regards,
