Is he going to work at the same hospital as Dr Bridwell and Dr Lenke?
I'm really sorry that you've got this stress I know I was unhappy when one of my surgeons moved on, because not only was he highly skilled, he was also a really nice man - something that isn't always the case. Will you see someone else at the same hospital in future?
Diagnosed at 15 with 50° curve, but probably juvenile IS. Fused in kyphosis (by non-specialised ortho) with a/p surgery T10-L2 @ 21, posterior only revision surgery to correct kyphosis @ 29. Now 38 with further revision surgery and extension of fusion to sacrum required to correct residual kyphosis, restore lordosis and address spinal stenosis.
