    I suspect she misstated or you misunderstood. IV pain meds are used at least until it's appropriate for the patient to take oral meds (which is typically at least a few days).

    If your fusion is solid (and there's no reason to believe it's not), there's nothing anyone can do to cause harm to the fusion or implants.

    Hi Ana...

    I'm surprised at your surgeon's opinion. Your fusion stops at L2, and you have herniated discs at L3-4, L4-5, & L5-S1. Your pain could potentially be from the herniated discs. You...

    By the way, back to your original question, the fellowships that I mention are all Orthopaedic fellowships. I'm sure there are good Neurosurgery programs that specialize in spinal deformity, but I...

    I would say the top 3 are:

    Columbia
    Wash U
    UCSF

    There are dozens of others, however, that also have good programs. For example:

    Norton
    Hospital for Special Surgery

    Deformity surgery is relatively new in the world of neurosurgery, but it's been around long enough that there are now some well respected surgeons. I don't think it makes all that much difference. ...

    I'd like to remind folks that this is a scoliosis forum. While the virus is something to consider for those planning surgery, I want to ensure that threads don't get hijacked.

    Thanks.

    For the record, I put the form on UCSF stationery, but it was actually created by myself, mostly from my own experience and tips I got on the original scoliosis forum.

    We should have no issues with people who stick to posting their own or their kids' experience. It is grossly irresponsible to encourage others to seek specific treatment, regardless of what that...

    Orthotists never see the patients after they've "graduated".

    I'd suggest that you talk to an orthopaedist who is an ADULT deformity specialist. They're the ones who see these kids once they're adults. While it's possible that there is an entire population of...

    Scoliosis only rarely causes death. As I've said before, I've known people with very large curves who live productive lives, even into their 7th, 8th, and 9th decades. Most probably have some back...

    If any real research existed regarding this, I'm fairly certain I would have heard about it by now. I haven't.

    Just got word that UCSF Spine has postponed all surgeries and clinic appointments. I suspect this will soon be the case for all non-essential surgeries around the world.
