    Dr. Rex Marco?

    Hi All, This is Janet's sister Jinger. My 27 year old daughter also has scoliosis. She lives in Houston and has had one meeting with Dr. Rex Marco. He is with UT (Un. of Texas) Spine & Scoliosis Center. She has an S curve. 60 degrees on top and almost 60 on the bottom with another curve in her neck. Has anyone had surgery with him? As you can see this is kind of a family thing.

    PS. Janet has had a good day, but really mad about showing a big gain on the scale. She might be getting rid of that as we speak!!!

    Marco does mainly pedi/adol surgeries ... (they both do almost all the surgeries at Shriners Houston).

    PM me. My surgeon practices with him, and from what I can tell, does FAR more adult surgeries.
