Harrington rod issues /1980/Dr. Kiem
I am a 44 yr old female with what I was told to be flatback syndrome & degenerative joint & disc disease. Had scoliosis surgery w/Dr. Kiem in 1980. Although experiecing some pain & discomfort over the past 15 yrs, nothing compared to the past 3 months. Just had an xray done by my GP. She saw my bottom 2 discs under the fusion & rod have moved but recommends MRI & ortho follow up. Can anyone recommend a Dr. in CT. NJ or NY? Someone who actually has experience in helping harrington rod issues? I see a lot of talk about people getting ready to have rods removed after many years but no discussions on how they are doing after treatment. That makes me a little nervous.
