    Anything on Dr. Cotler in HOU?


    Someone just recommended Dr. Howard B. Cotler in Houston to me and wonder if anyone knows about him.

    I'm scheduled to visit with Dr. Lagrone in Amarillo for the first time in 2 weeks (I can't wait) but since someone told me about this other Houston doctor I thought that I'd ask since I am in Houston.

    Hi Marilyn...

    I'm not certain that this is of any importance, but I see that Dr. Cotler is not a member of the Scoliosis Research Society. I couldn't find his CV online, but it appears that while he's a spine surgeon, he might not be specialized in deformity. If you do decide to see him, be sure to find out how many surgeries like what you'll need, he typically does every year.
