    Agreed, Melissa. Had the story run strictly in the NY Post, I would be a little skeptical as well. The link I posted is from the NY Daily News (the story also ran in a couple of other publications,...

    I agree there are risks to any surgery. I had to sign a consent form for my son's surgery - and even though it was several years ago, that's not something you forget. And yes, surgeons are sued all...

    I guess it's possible that anything can be a coincidence. I had not heard of any plans for him to retire, nor had the person who told me about the lawsuit (which could mean nothing). In any event,...

    Dr. Boachie Named in Lawsuit

    I had heard that Dr. Boachie retired. Today, someone told me he closed his practice in NY and returned to Ghana and then forwarded me this article. My heart goes out to this poor girl.

    Kudos to Wash U for being honest and allowing you to make the decision based on all the facts. Very different from when Dr. Betz left Shriners (see my post above). They also did not automatically...

    I agree that this could have nothing at all to do with Dr. Lenke not caring about his patients (I'm sure he does). However, there could be non-compete clauses in his contract with WashU that...

    Great post, Ed. And I see you emphasized the word "some" which cannot be stressed enough. There are still too many doctors (not just pediatricians, but sadly orthos as well) who don't know enough...

    All good points, folks.

    Probably the thing I agree most of all with is that pediatricians are clueless when it comes to scoliosis. I have educated more than a few in my time and I'm just a lay...

    Thanks, Susie.

    I, too, am shaking my head at how anyone could think something as simple, quick and non-invasive as a bending test is not necessary. They have to realize that it is going to help...

    I believe the laws vary from state to state, but I think it's crazy not to, at the very least, test these kids in school using the Adam's forward bending test. Maybe in cases where scoliosis runs in...

    You might check with Dr. Darryl Antonacci, also in NYC (at the Institute for Spine and Scoliosis). I believe he may have some experience with this type of surgery.
