    Hi Patrick...

    I don't know if it's possible for you, but I would encourage you to try to get up to San Francisco to see Sig Berven at UCSF. He's very conservative, and is well known for only...

    Hi Rita...

    I could have written this. Prior to my first scoliosis surgery at age 42, I had a tremendous amount of pain. Thankfully, I was self-employed, so I could lay down in the late afternoon...

    When my procedure was attempted, it was for a DRG. It's placed in the same method as the SCS, so would be subject to the same complications for someone with a fusion.

    I had the same experience as Jackie. They couldn't get the leads placed because of my fusion. My surgeon feels they could do it, but it would have to be done under general anesthesia, which is too...

    Hi...

    Just checked with two specialists, one of whom does VBT. Both said her curve was way too large for tethering. I'm guessing that whoever operated on her was either 1) clueless or 2) felt...

    I think that's probably a big part of the issue. It's also possible that it will take a long time for her soft tissues to get used to the new configuration.

    She's pretty amazing.

    I'm really surprised that anyone would have tethered that curve. Unfortunately, I seriously doubt it will hold over time, and I'd be willing to bet that she'll end with a...

    Hi...

    Lucency around screws is actually pretty common, and you shouldn't jump to the conclusion that you'll need more surgery. In most cases, the patient goes on to have a solid fusion. Does the...

    First, I'm not sure we can trust Mnuchin to tell the truth about the numbers. Second, even if he's right, the article says there will be an 11% shortfall in 2026, so it's unlikely Medicare will...

    I think that was Social Security. As far as I know, the only problem with Medicare is that Mitch and his friends want to significantly reduce Medicare.
