    Cincinnati Dr

    For those still looking. I'm just under 2 weeks after my T6-L3 surgery. I went to Dr. Kahn III of Cincinnati Spine Institute. I was very pleased with the surgery and results. He's quite good.

    What was the reason for your surgery? Kyphosis or Scoliosis

    My particular surgery was to correct my scoliosis. If you are in the area, I would suggest contacting the Cincinnati Spine Institute, they would be able to let you know other doctors who work in this specialty.

    Are you looking for an adult or pediatric ortho? They are two very different specialties.

    Adult Kyphosis specialist, normally they don’t mention “Scoliosis or Kyphosis” specialist

    Indianapolis

    I have an appointment with Dr. Terry Trammel in Indianapolis in November. Of course I have heard of him, but his vitae lists scoliosis as a speciality. When I made the appointment with the Indy Ortho group, the scheduler stated that Dr. Trammel's nurse practioneer had Dr. Trammel treat her scoliosis. I'm going because I'm beginning to have some pain and have never really had any follow up since my fusion as a teenager. Has anyone else used Ortho Indy?

    I've been to OrthoIndy

    And, I've seen Trammel, but it's been a while. I had my surgery for my kyphosis in 1989 in Louisville, but moved to Indy. Trammel was my first follow-up doc. However, he became very hard to get in to see. When I was visiting less than yearly, the receptionist would never believe that I was a patient of his and I had a terrible time getting an appt. I finally gave up. I have seen another doc in the practice since then. I like him a lot, but he is very conservative, so I am seeking a second opinion about revision possibilities. Trammel was nicer than I expected, considering that he is a doc who sees many race car drivers and professional athletes.

    So he deals with adults as well? On their website, they only list him as pediatric.

    I've got an appointment with Dr. Rohmiller on monday at the Cincy Spine Institute.
