I would like to hear from someone that has had surgery at Georgetown University Hospital and if they could please let me know how their stay in the hospital was and what kind of results they had. Dr. Lauerman is the doctor I've seen there. The other Hospital is Union Memorial Hospital in Baltimore. The doctor there is Paul Asdourian. If anyone has had an experiance there please let me know how that went as well. My upper curve is 53 and my lumbar curve is 66. It sounds like both anterior and posterior approach with fusions all the way down to S-1 will be needed. I'm also wondering what time of year might be best to have the surgery. I'm thinking right after Christmas so the worst of it will be when I want to be inside anyway. I will be 40 this October, and would like to hear from someone close to my age and degree of curve.
