Hi Jean - MY identity here at SSO is amazed but I am also a Jean. I also have seen Dr. Lonstein. He is certainly well known and did write the book on scoliosis that most doctors used as a text book. I have had no surgeries and no bracing. Just wanted to welcome you.

I was diagnosed in 1965 at 14 years with Kyphoscoliosis and 2 curves measuring 68 and 63 degrees. My last measurements were in 2004 at 155, 88 and 55+ degrees. I have never had surgery or bracing so I now am on full time oxygen and use a Non Invasive Ventilator at night. at night.

Hi All,


Its been a while since I posted, in fact almost a year if the truth be known!
I am Eva's mum and I know she has been posting recently and delighted to be able to correspond with others who have walked in her shoes.

Eva has both her operation performed at Cappagh hospital by Damien McCormack, but we are looking futher afield in fact Australia for a optho surgeon to get a second opinion on a coplasty.

Does anyone know of any such surgeons in Sydney.

Thanks

Bye for now

Hi Lucinda,


I see you posted about Dr Ian Torode who operates at Royal Childrens hospital Victoria Australia, is he to be recommended as Eva some time in the future will be seeking an opinion on having her rib hump reduced.


If you have the time, I would love to her your experience.


Bye for now

Dympna

Dr. Laurence E. Mermelstein
North Shore University Hospital
North Shore/LIJ Hospital System
Long Island, NY

He's a pediatic scoliosis specialist and an amazing doctor. He's the top scoliosis specialist on Long Island. He treats everyone with care and respect. If he sees that your condition needs immediate care and action (as mine did), he will make sure you get it as soon as possible. I went into his office this June, about mid-way through the month, for the first time and I was immediately scheduled for surgery in the beginning of August. Usually it takes months to get a surgery date, but my dad had the date within a week of my appointment. If you live on Long Island, I highly recommend him.

His practice is Long Island Spine Specialists, P.C. in Commack, Long Island, NY.
You can view his bio here. http://www.lispine.com/doctors/bio_mermelstein.shtml
