HI all,

I live in the UK and would like to get in touch with non-UK spinal surgeons. I have congenital hemi-verterbrae in the thoracic area. I'm 28 and don't get too much pain. I have a lumbar curve of 60 degrees and thoracic curve of 68 degrees. In addition, I have a syrinx in the thoracic area.

I have done some reading about surgery in these cases and know that a fusion is possible with good results. In the UK I have been told surgery is too risky, but I'm not sure if this is a world wide opinion.

I would be eternally grateful if someone here might be able to help me get the contact details of another expert in congenital scoioisis surgery.

kind regards
gavin

Hi Gavin...

If it can be done, Dr. Boachie can do it:
