I saw Nathan Lebwohl at the University of Miami a few years ago. He's highly regarded, heads the ortho dept, and is a developer with of one of the newest instrumentations used in scoliosis surgery. Unfortunately, he has taken a leave til Oct 2009.
Anthony Moreno is at Moreno Spine & Scoliosis in Tampa and Palm Harbor and specializes in adult surgery and reconstruction. He was the one featured on the news, and the only surgeon (after countless worldwide refused) to treat a Russian girl with a 120 degree curve. See Tatiana's story and Dr Moreno at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nlbzJ9r7uwA. He's the one doing my surgery.
Thoracic curve was 55 degrees, now 30
Lumbar curve was 68 degrees, now 26
Rib rotation was 17 degrees, now 0
Degenerated discs and sacral arthritic spurs, plus significant spondylosis
Fused 8/13/09 at age 43 from T-9 to pelvis with iliac screws anchoring hardware to the pelvis, plus osteomies by Drs. Anthony Moreno and Geoff Cronen, Tampa, FL
