Possibility of Removing Fused Spinal Hardware
Hello, I'm Josh! I'm 20 years of age (21 in May of 2013) and have had three surgeries done on my back about five years ago for scoliosis. I have two titanium rods in my back that go from my lower neck to just above my butt, This limits me from doing many of the things a young man like me should be able to do. As the title of this discussion suggests, I am wondering if it is at all possible for me to have these metal rods removed. I'm aware that you do not have access to my x-rays and medical records, but I just want a shot at regaining my mobility and living a more normal, active life. Any advice on this topic would be greatly appreciated and I am more than willing to elaborate on my current condition. I am also looking for a spinal surgeon close by that is within my insurance network. Thank you for your time.
