“Patients who are equipped with knowledge are able to help us, help them get better. Patient information is a cornerstone of patient education. Informed patients are one of our primary focuses at the Southwest Scoliosis Institute. We want our patients to be active participants in their treatment plan. That is why we take the time to listen to their concerns and collaborate with them. We explain each step of their treatment plan.” – Richard Hostin, MD


Deborah Butter, Scoliosis Surgery Patient:

Deborah couldn’t remember a single day in her life without pain, she was born with scoliosis. Deborah had an 82-degree curve at the top of her spine and an 89-degree curve on the bottom. She was in terrible pain and suffering from other complications of scoliosis, including a chest deformity that made it difficult to breathe. She was also having a hard time walking and required a cane. “I was in so much pain, I felt like a zombie most of the time,” said Deborah. “I couldn’t work anymore. I couldn’t shop or cook.” That all changed when she had scoliosis surgery with Richard Hostin, MD. “I have a brand-new lease on life, living without pain, thanks to Dr. Hostin.” said Deborah Butter, Scoliosis Patient


Our goal is to provide effective, evidence-based, and lifetime of care for our scoliosis and complex spine patients. We are committed to delivering superior, patient-centered care to every patient on every visit. Only a handful of surgeons in the United States have extensive experience and interest in specializing in scoliosis and complex spine cases. Our Scoliosis center is equipped with a state-of-the-art EOS X-ray system, for patients that require an X-ray. This low dose radiation is perfect for all types of patients, from adults to children, it allows you to stand or sit and completes the X-ray in no time. 

In many cities, there are no orthopedic surgeons who focus on the care of adults and children with scoliosis, therefore many people who could benefit from scoliosis surgery are unaware of the opportunity to improve their condition and their quality of life.
