    Shriners Hospital For Kids @ Portland Oregon.

    I didn't even know this section existed but since I've found it, I'd just like to say that my 14/yo son who had a severe scoliosis of 110* recently spent 5 weeks at this hospital a short while ago while he had a posterior release/halo traction (4 weeks) and then posterior fusion. Dr. Ivan Krajbich was his surgeon who made up the plan for him and I/we are very happy with how everything went. The interns (2 hot Australians boys & 1 girl), nurses, aids, cafe staff and housekeepers etc. were so wonderful. The hospital is also very beautiful and sits on top of a hill that overlooks Portland... Hotel Shriners I kept saying.

    Definitely recommend Dr. K and Shriners Portland, OR.

    The 'edit' timed out but I meant to say that my son's curve was taken from about 110* to about 25*. I know, I can't believe I forgot that little fact but I was more concerned about the other details. When I can't sleep at night, I always think about the 'weird' journey we went on but at the same time, I think it's fascinating and it was educational and obviously beneficial and it relaxes me and makes me go to sleep. Very comforting.
