I received this Blog Comment/Question today.
Thanks for your encouraging feedback on the Blog.
The Scoliosis Research Society (SRS) website is very helpful for identifying surgeons who specialize in scoliosis and reconstructive revision surgery.
The website is http://www.SRS.org.
You can search it by region of the country.
Many patients still choose to see SRS surgeons from around the country, (our Clinic, for example in past 3 years has seen patients from 32 States and 4 foreign countries), but it is often preferable to find an excellent scoliosis surgeon closer to home. Many will seek second or third opinions from surgeons in other parts of the country, learning and seeing which surgeon and approach is best for them.
Don’t forget: conservative treatment is usually your best first option before diving into revision surgery. Some of my other Blogs and other education materials stress that. There is a Midtown Magazine article which is found on my main website which outlines many aspects of conservative care.
Take care and best of luck.
