    Scoliosis Dr. in Baltimore

    I am a 43 year old female that has a Harrington Rod - surgery was performed by Dr. David B. Levine of the Hospital of Special Surgery in NYC. I am having pain above and below my fusion. The pain started approximately in 1996 and I've been taking Naproxin since then. I had a baby this past February and now the pain above and below the fusion is quite intense. I was seeing a doctor at Shady Grove Hospital in Rockville, Maryland - but I want to go to someone in the Baltimore area. Is there an excellent doctor specializing in problems with scolisis resulting from a correction done with a Harrington rod?

    Sorry I don't have any advice yet. I'm still trying to find out why there is pain above and below the rod. One therapist told me that where the rod is it is like cement and of course the two ends are weaker. I'll keep you up to date. No, I don't know any doctors in LA. Sorry.
