    Hi Jon...

    Yes, I know quite a few. Where in California are you located?

    Hi Linda or Anyone

    In addition to the prior Doctor you mentioned, who do you think are the top 2 or 3 Docs in southern california. As you know, I'm looking into possibly getting a 2nd surgery to hopefully achieve the following:
    - relieve flat back syndrome, and subsequent pressure/pain on lumbar area
    - reduce pain in both humps
    - straighten spine more (if possible)
    - reduce humps with thoacoplasty

    I'm looking into this for current pain relief, potential future pain relief and cosmetic reasons (but mostly for pain).

    And if possible, can you tell me who you think are the top 2 or 3 surgeons in the country.

    Thanks!

    Jon

    Hi Jon...

    Unfortunately, I don't really know much about any of the other southern California surgeons, so I'm not comfortable making any recommendation. The names I hear the most for flatback/revision surgery are:

    Serena Hu, UCSF
    Sigurd Berven, UCSF
    Keith Bridwell, St. Louis
    Frank Rand, Boston
    Oheneba Boachie, NY
    Mike LaGrone, Amarillo

    I would personally let any of them operate on me.

    Regards,
    Linda
