    Exclamation John's Hopkins contact information

    My son is 15 months old and scheduled for spinal fusion surgery June 10th. We're not sure that this is the best thing for him because he's so young. We are "only" looking at two vertebrae being fused together for the hemivertebrae but still..... we are looking into information at John's Hopkins. Does anyone have any contact information to share with us for a second opinion? We're in a time crunch and need your help! Thanks

    Dr. Sponseller of Johns Hopkins has been highly recommended to us more than once, but we have not seen him yet. I believe he helps very young children, but if he can't, his office can refer you to a doctor who can.
