I think it's high time we put a list of American, Canadian and Aussie consultants who have treated SSO members.So if anyone would like to add their info, we'll try and create a more user friendly list for future members.Your help would be very much appreciated.

Please be aware that this list is not exhaustive or comprehensive. It only represents doctors who are known to have treated members of this site, and there are plenty of good specialists out there who may well not be listed here.

Well the hospital he's at now treats lots of kids, from all over Alberta and BC and Sak. and NWT and Yukon..... and he's head of pediatric surgery. So that is why he came. And we have malls and movie theaters... it's not like we're rednecks or anything.

Joy,

You made me smile I was only joking, I am aware that Edmonton is a heavily populated city. I do know the move to Edmonton was a good one for Dr. Hedden and I hope he's happy there. Yet... Sick Kids will never be the same without Dr. Hedden. Oh well, we're commuting to Montreal to see Dr. Rivard and we're very pleased with everything.

I was treated by Dr. John Lonstein
Minnesota Spine Center
Minneapolis, Minnesota

in 1988 (age 40) and was pleased with my care. As an adult I was interested in finding a doctor who performed 'many' adult surgeries and learned of Dr. Lonstein through researching the medical library at the University of AL Medical Center in Birmingham, AL. His name was found repeatedly in various research. I corresponded with him for 12 years via mail - sending x-rays etc, - prior to my first 'face to face' with him.

18 years post op I have some chronic 'greater trochander bursitis' which is annoying but tolerable. I have a rod broken in my upper back-probably means a weekness in the fusion.
