    Susanna,

    Awesome list! Do you know of any such list for Canadian doctors? I have had one heck of a time finding a Canadian doctor that deals with revisions and adults.

    Thanks!

    Hi Lisa...

    The Scoliosis Research Society has a list of scoliosis surgeons, in the U.S. and internatinally, on their website at http://www.srs.org. I don't really know of any Canadian doctors who do a lot of revision surgery. :-( Sorry.

    Regards,
    Linda

    Thanks so much for the information. I have heard of Dr. Boachie-Adjei. I have chosen Dr. Farcy for my revision. I look forward to meeting him and getting through this.

    Dr. Moskovich

    Hi Susanna,

    Did you consult with Dr. Moskovich? I heard from somebody else that he is excellent and a caring person. I am considering consulting with him in the future and would love to hear if you met him. Thanks! ~Laura

    Dr. Moskovich

    Laura,

    we were so enamoured with Dr. Boachie we cancelled our remaining appointments in NY, however, I have heard nothing but the best regarding Dr. Moskovich. I would definitely recommend him.

    I read Ginny's story on Beyond Scoliosis web site, and she mentioned a Dr. Grey in San Francisco.

    I didn't see his name on the web site you gave.

    I live near Sacramento, California, and am very interested in revision surgery.

    Ginny's story is so similar to mine in the emotional grief and trauma caused by having a scoliosis. To top it all off, I also have alopecia universalis, total loss of body hair, that I have coped with for ten years. Even though I am 48 years old and have a wonderful husband and two healthy children who have no scoliosis to be thankful for, it is now time for me to do something for me, something I have wanted for a long time, to be able to correct this thing that has bothered me for so many decades, a problem I never thought could be corrected.

    Can anybody tell me out there of a surgeon that they have had experience with in San Francisco or the bay area?

    Thanks,

    Kkong

    Hi Kkong...

    Actually, Dr. Gray is on the list. Here's the link:

    http://www.cpmc.org/advanced/pediatr...thopedics.html

    Dr. Gray did my surgery, and I think he's a fine surgeon. However, for revision surgery, I'd recommend that you get yourself to UCSF to see Dr. Serena Hu, Dr. Sigurd Berven, or Dr. Vedat Deviren. They all do a tremendous number of revision surgeries.

    It's so nice to talk to someone that has a clue as to what I am going through.
