Awesome list! Do you know of any such list for Canadian doctors? I have had one heck of a time finding a Canadian doctor that deals with revisions and adults.

Hi Lisa...

The Scoliosis Research Society has a list of scoliosis surgeons, in the U.S. and internatinally, on their website at http://www.srs.org. I don't really know of any Canadian doctors who do a lot of revision surgery. :-( Sorry.

Glad to be a part of this forum. I am slowly finding my way to revision surgery and wondered if anyone has seen Dr. Farcy in NYC? He is definitely who I will be going to see, have heard very good things about him and am excited to meet him. Any input? Nice to know you aer all out there and I'm not alone!

Thanks so much for the information. I have heard of Dr. Boachie-Adjei. I have chosen Dr. Farcy for my revision. I look forward to meeting him and getting through this.

Hi Susanna,

Did you consult with Dr. Moskovich? I heard from somebody else that he is excellent and a caring person. I am considering consulting with him in the future and would love to hear if you met him. Thanks! ~Laura

we were so enamoured with Dr. Boachie we cancelled our remaining appointments in NY, however, I have heard nothing but the best regarding Dr. Moskovich. I would definitely recommend him.

I read Ginny's story on Beyond Scoliosis web site, and she mentioned a Dr. Grey in San Francisco.

I didn't see his name on the web site you gave.

I live near Sacramento, California, and am very interested in revision surgery.

Ginny's story is so similar to mine in the emotional grief and trauma caused by having a scoliosis. To top it all off, I also have alopecia universalis, total loss of body hair, that I have coped with for ten years. Even though I am 48 years old and have a wonderful husband and two healthy children who have no scoliosis to be thankful for, it is now time for me to do something for me, something I have wanted for a long time, to be able to correct this thing that has bothered me for so many decades, a problem I never thought could be corrected.

Can anybody tell me out there of a surgeon that they have had experience with in San Francisco or the bay area?

hi KKong,
There is a woman who just had surgery out by Sacramento named Suzy. She & I have been in touch. she is now recovering. Her Doctor is Matthew Mermer & I know she was really happy with him. I also read Ginny's story & could relate to her feelings..good luck..Lynne :) ps. you can see her posts so search under 'suzy'

Hi Kkong...

Actually, Dr. Gray is on the list. Here's the link:


Dr. Gray did my surgery, and I think he's a fine surgeon. However, for revision surgery, I'd recommend that you get yourself to UCSF to see Dr. Serena Hu, Dr. Sigurd Berven, or Dr. Vedat Deviren. They all do a tremendous number of revision surgeries.

Thank you so much.

It's so nice to talk to someone that has a clue as to what I am going through.
