    Possible 3rd Surgery / Seeking excellent orthopedic surgeon [scoliosis] in Boston

    Hello everyone,
    It has been a little over two years since I have been on the forum. I had my 2nd surgery at NYU hospital in January of 2011. I received new hardware but the correction I was hoping for was not achieved. My Doctor assured me that my spine would be much straighter. I only gained about 1/2" in height. In addition I now have lower and upper back pain. Later on that year I moved to Boston. I am now researching spinal surgeons for check-ups. Can anyone suggest a premier orthopedic surgeon in the greater Boston area who specializes in scoliosis? Someone on the level of a Dr. Oheneba Boachie-Adjei [Hospital for Special Surgery in NYC]. Thank you. I look forward to suggestions.

    Hi Myke...

    Paul Glazer and Frank Rand both have good reputations.
