My first surgery (spinal stapling) was performed by Dr. Randal Betz, but he no longer performs surgery due to his age.

My second surgery (spinal fusion) was performed by Dr. Amer Samdani. He can be found at Shriner's Hospital for Children in Philadelphia. 3551 North Broad Street Philadelphia, PA 19140-4131 - (215) 430-4022

He used to be a neurosurgeon, but now also does spinal surgery. He did a beautiful job on my back and I'm so happy. He's listens to the patients and is a very kind man.

If you're in Canada or the USA you can also contact Shriners Hospitals For Kids. You do not need a sponsor. The application form is very short and easy to fill out. It's also good to include as much information about your child's health issues and to send along copies of x-rays, MRI's etc. They are very good with kids and know a lot about scoliosis. Some of their hospitals in the US take medical insurance now but if you're like me and am from Canada, they might take your child on as a 'charity' case which means they pay 100% of the expenses. They are amazing!! http://www.shrinershospitalsforchild...Hospitals.aspx

I see this thread hasn't been posted in in awhile but I figured I'd add my input since no one has mentioned my doctors.

They are both from London Health Science Centre in London Ontario and are at Victoria Hospital.

My pediatric doctor was Dr. Carey.

My current doctor who specializes in adults is Dr. Gurr.

They are both orthopaedic surgeons. Sorry I don't remember their first names.

Also here is a good link for anyone with scoliosis. It has lots of info and you can search for a specialist in your area on there.
